Let's say you want to buy or already have a camera and you wish to take some quality pictures that you can share with others and maybe even sell some. Where do you start?
Well simple, you first have to come up with an idea of what will you be taking pictures off. Will it be landscape, objects, models, animals or anything else, just think of it and try it out.
Take up to 100 pictures a day, take pictures anywhere you want to and have the proper lighting. Once you have those pictures taken, look through them and find those you like the most. This way you can see which things and which angles suit you best, so you can know what your style is.
Now that you've done this, repeat the process a few times until you get enough of the pictures you like and feel they belong to your style.
Here comes the important part if you wish to share your pictures with others. Ask your family and friends what they think about your work and ask them what their favorite pictures are. Once you get their opinion, you can head out to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and post your pictures there for others to like and comment, using Instagram.
A good place to upload and share your pictures is Photobucket, so you should and check it out: http://photobucket.com/
Just remember that practice makes perfect so continue to take pictures, because you never know what you might find and catch in your everyday life.
