Okay, so I'm at the very beginning stages of learning photography and I recognize that I have a whole lot to learn. I have a little compact digital camera that doesn't let me have much manual control of anything. I want to save up and buy a nice camera but I want to make sure I am serious enough about this to invest the money a nice camera requires. I am getting frustrated because a lot of times I can see in my mind what I want a picture to be but I can't take the picture with my camera and the pictures I do take I'm not satisfied with at all (which is probably good cause the pics aren't that great).
I know some of, okay probably a lot of it is simply that I need to learn better basic photography skills, but I was also wondering if anyone had any suggestions for getting the most out of my little camera.
I was also wondering if there was any subject matter a little point and shoot camera would be more adaptable to. I've already gathered that anything with much movement or action is not really going to work because of my lack of control of shutter speed.
I was also wondering, what do I need to start with learning? I can't really do much as far as aperture and shutter speed control so learning that stuff isn't really helping right now. I'm only getting frustrated knowing there's a lot I could do but can't. What other things should I focus on learning that I can really practice with the little point and shoot camera that I have?
