Buying a camera would be a good start.

Best Answer

First start looking to buy an inexpensive but professional camera. Cameras aren't cheap, but you'll want one that allows you to take great photographs and not just snap shots like these new digital cameras do. When I first discovered I liked photography I went out and bought a "Pentax 1000" camera. It was fully manual camera that had no auto settings or even auto focus, but it is these types of cameras that allow your artistic talent to grow. Learning how to achieve the photograph you want to take using a manual camera will teach you all you need to know about taking great photographs. The Pentax K100 has manual film advance and manual focus, but is a camera that allows you to interchange lenses and filters to achieve the most creative photos. I'm sure you can find one of these types of cameras at a pawn shop or swap meet at an affordable price, but brand new I would expect to pay in the neighborhood of 100 dollars for the body and another 50 dollars for a good lens. I think my first Pentax 1000 cost me about 300 bucks by the time I got done with a few little extras I wanted like filters. this is the starter camera that most photographers recommend. everything is manual on it and it allows you to get to know the technical's of creating great art.<br />
You next step would be to enroll in a photography class at a local Jr College to learn the basics of photography and learning how to achieve what you want to achieve from your camera. Or you could enroll in an art institute where I'm sure you'll find the same good direction from the professors there as well.<br />
