Question by jackie5016: I’m interested in starting photography. Any tips?
Keep in mind — I’m only 15 years old. I absolutely love photography and I’m thinking about making it a serious hobby/career.
However. I don’t know much about it at all. I looked some things up online, but I figured coming here would give me real answers from people who know what they’re doing. What is a good camera to START with? Right now, I have a Kodak digital camera that’s 8.0 mega pixels (I’ve heard that’s pretty good for a digital camera. Is that true? Most that I’ve seen are around 6.0 mp.) It works fine for me, and I’ve heard that it’s a good thing to start out with. I’ve taken a few pictures here and there with the settings that are already programmed into the camera. What I really would NOT want to do is get into taking pictures having to do with journalism, newspapers, etc. I’m more interested in the artistic view. Does that make sense?
Can anyone tell me some general things I’ll need to know? Ways to go about getting better?

I’d recommend starting simple. 8.0MegaPixels is good. Perhaps you should consider getting a deviantArt account, I love deviantART. http://www.deviantart.com Also remember, practice makes perfect!
