The Canon Rebel series is a great beginner series. Also some of the Nikon D series, like the D3500, D3400, and the D5300 would be good choices. In my photography classes, we used mostly cameras from the Canon Rebel series and a few Nikons, including a Nikon D3200. I recommend starting with either Canon or Nikon. Get one of the cheaper camera bodies with a kit lens, like a cheap zoom. Canon and Nikon are the two brands still primarily used by professionals, and you can grow with the brand you choose. Both are great. I've ultimately stuck with Canon, as their cameras may arguably perform better in low light conditions. Anyway, the reason to pick one of these, is if you continue to grow as a photographer, you can grow comfortable with the settings and layouts of each camera, which will be similar as you upgrade camera bodies. More importantly, any lenses you buy as you improve the quality of your lens collection will work on future camera bodies you purchase. That way, you don't have to repeat expenses in rebuilding a lens collection later!
