Also, shoot RAW.

Can't stress this enough.

Shouldn't try and stress it to hard though. Not a welcome suggest around here.

lol seriously. its not that its a bad suggestion its the reasoning you used to support your suggestion that one time was not that great. shooting RAW is an excellent idea but its important to understand why RAW is good and not to shoot mediocre photos just to fix them in post. its rather important to almost every photog out there to get the shot right when you take it rather than fix everything that is wrong with it later. you appreciate your shots more if you are getting shots right out of camera that look great because if you take a bunch of bad pics there is no telling if they will come out great after processing them. but if its right the first time you will already know if you like it or not wink.gif just my opinion and not fact or anything lol

As you've heard already, having your camera with you means a lot. Try things out. See what you like and what you don't
Adding onto that, I would say read. Not webpages. Get a good photographic book (not dummies, or "your new canon") but something about composition, rule of thirds, and basic math. Check your library for possibilities if you don't want to buy your own. Even with digital, the underlying math and theory doesn't change so you can even learn something from older books

Good luck & happy shooting.
