Step 1: Decide how much money you have.
Not a whole lot since I have a girlfriend and we bought a house.
Step 2: Buy a camera.
Hello 20D for $80, you will do.
Step 3: Accessories
Found lens on Kijiji from older film SLR that works and buy other nic-nacs for another 50 in total.
Step 4: Find a cool spot to take some pictures
Step 5: Realize your computer screen sucks too bad to display pictures you are taking.
Look for another screen that leads me back to Step 1.
The joys of taking pictures, amirite?
