A DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera is a powerful machine to capture exactly your photographic vision. Point and shoot camera and fixed len prosumer camera are quite capable of capturing great pictures. A DSLR gives us total control over how the camera works. The larger sensor allows less intereference as the electronics capture the image, so the image quality (IQ) is better. Also the range of accessories and lenses allows the photographer to choose the way the light enters the camera. Don't be fooled though. A DSLR WILL NOT take better photos. Many DSLR owners suffer dissapointment that their new fancy camera does not relate to an improvemnt in their photography. If you buy a fancy paint brush, you wont suddenly paint more artistically either! Learn how to control the light entering your camera, make decisions based on your creative vision then release the shutter to capture the photo that matches the image in your mind.
Go to the next level with advanced off camera flash techniques. Budget methods through professional grade transmitters and receivers (and transceivers). Then build on your education with model sessions and wedding photography training with out experienced professional photographers.
Point and shoot cameras are very capable and allow you to capture images without the distractions of a complicated camera. Mastering composition and post processing on a basic camera will provide a solid foundation for your progression throuout your photographic journey. Taking the first step toward taking better pictures doesn't require anything more than the most simple camera!
