Lightroom 4 is $99 right now, and well worth it. I have Lightroom 3; haven't gotten around to upgrading yet, but it's worth the money.That's right - you're gonna need some post processing software too. I think Photoshop Elements is about $80 or $90.
Check photography-on-the.net for research and used options. Got my Canon 20D prosumer DSLR for about $200 there. It's not the latest and greatest, but great to learn on. Add a 50mm f/1.8 for about $100 and you've got a good inexpensive combo. She'll want something like that if she's taking Photography in school. Can prob get a newer model for similar price, as that was several years ago now. That's also where I sourced my 7D used.
I have 2, if she wants to borrow one. Haven't used them in years. One was my grandmother's (which I used for MY Photography course sophomore year of high school), the other was mine that I bought in the late 90s.thanks, will check that out.. we just found the course description for high school.. she will need *GASP* a film 35mm camera :-o
I imagine part of the course will be teaching them how to develop film and make prints, which is cool.
Freestyle Photo is a good vendor for B&W film if you don't have a vendor locally. My store orders through them wholesale. Though most of the college courses have gone DSLR but there are still a few B&W film classes offered. Surprised they are still offered at the HS level... gotta do something with that black room I guess... :roll: but they should at least offer a digital version of the course for those that could care less about B&W. Goodness knows most pros have probably gone digital by now leaving film for those few that are really into it.
