    For a very Noob I would say "don't ask 'what camera should I buy?'" but get some ideas from the reviews and then visit a store and find out for what is best for them :-) This isnt easy advice too follow on some fora.

    Think about what you want the final image to look like, then consider the composition and exposure values to achieve this.

    Look behind you!

    Sometimes the best picture isn't always in front of you. Look around and see what else is there.
