Anyone here got advice for a newbie on how to take a good picture?

Thanks!
You need to watch this movie, I believe it is called the Thomas Crown Affair.

Very good tips on how to take good pictures in that movie.

Read the Manual of your camera to explore all the features.
Then later keep playing and playing all the settings until you are very familiar.
Please see the difference between each settings, esp aperture, shutter, exposure composition, ISO, white balance, etc.

Also read up on framing, flash, filters.

first learn how to use the different modes on your camera and read up on basic composition ie, framing, rule of 3rds, repetition, contrast, leading lines, etc...(lots of info on the web).

then go out and shoot as much as you can. also i find that looking at other ppls pics and learning from them helps a lot too. can also try to tag along with a more experience photographer and learn from them.

I think someone mentioned that the number of posts does not justify whether you are a good photographer. A member with 1 post may be a better photographer than one who has 10000 posts.

One way to improve is to know your instrument as well as you can. If you can change all the settings on the camera without taking your eye off the viewfinder, you are 1/5 there. And I think this is the easiest 5th. Haha.
