Folks,

I am a newbie in this field and want to broaden my knowledge in photography as a hobby. What is the best way to learn photography? Are online courses useful? I do not have any person with similar intererst around me and hence I am asking you folks. How can I improve my photography skills?

What kind of camera do you have ? Having Camera & Taking pictures only won't help you need to Learn to use various Softwares Like Photoshop,Fireworks so that you can develop better ideas about editing ,enhancing Pictures .

If you are really trying to get into Photography best solution is to get DSLR , Use youtube,Google to find various guides how to take better shots :P then you can slowly think about taking classes once you have basic knowledge .

The best way to learn is by doing, however, a little knowledge about the basics goes a long way. 
Basic knowledge about the settings on your camera is a good start. Read the manual then read it again. 
Basic knowledge about exposure - aperture and shutter speed is also a good starting point. 
You don't necessarily need a formal class. Books and online tutorials can be a big help in getting the theory down. Then it's just practice, practice, practice and don't be afraid to experiment.

Take a lot of pictures, look at a lot of pictures and figure out what you like and don't like, take a lot more pictures.
Go to a Graduation Ceremony, wedding ceremony and take lots and lots and lots of picture. 

Take pictures of Trees, snow, cat, babies playing, baby smiling.

Start taking pictures now.

Nice thread and agreed with Nepalinetworks and purana kagaz. I think learning as well and practicing more and more is the only way to learn photography. Rather than depending only on books and internet, the best way is to use the camera and hit the floor. Good luck jacksparrow. raju161, i would rate 8 of 10, must say a great pic.

Thank you for your response guys. I own a Nikon D90 and I also know the basics of my camera. However, I am not satisfied with the pictures I get. Anyways, here is one from my side.

Keep the ideas rolling.

Jacksparrow ji,


Good to hear you're interested in photography. Nikon D90 is a good camera. I own Nikon myself and love the features. I would say to start with check out Youtube, it has some great videos. Takeing photography at a local community college is a good idea too and it won't cost too much. You should share some more of your pictures with us, would love to see your work.


This is one of my all time favorite photograph taken during cold winter morning. ;-)
