Please dun call youself an idiot.....everyone must start learning from somewhere. My pic is not good too.....I am also very new to photography. Ok, to focus, you see the white box in your viewfinder? When you are trying to take a photo, just decide which part of the photo you want to sharp, then point you cam in such a manner that the area in in the white box. Half press your camera shutter (the button for taking the photo), then you will see that the auto focus will kick in and focus the pic to the area within the white box. Continue to hold on to the half press and then move the camera to get what you want within the viewfinder and then finally fully press the shutter to capture the pic!! That's it! But a point to note, dun move away while in half press mode, once your distant with the focused obj changes, the focus may be out too....learn this first. About the composition (how to place/position the obj within a pic) can be learnt later, just see more of others' people pic to learn what is a good composition.
Hope this helps. Remember, good to be humble, but not self condeming.
