    Yes!.....give me all your money and i promise not to give you anything in return other than false hope of being a professional.Just describing some photography courses.Avoid most of them as the internet can serve you better.Better still give me all your money instead just for the fun of it.

    :D How long have you been into photography?  My skills are limited to a blurry shot captured on my mobile phone.

    Quite a few years.If you really want to take better pictures then Youtube has a lot of beginner vids including using a mobile phone.It's more than just pixel count,that is just a sales point!...carry on though for now with the phone camera as it won't cost you anything extra until you decide you want to learn more then move onto a digital camera.

    I'll check out some YouTube beginners videos and see if I can improve my technique, thanks @CMM

    Thanks @CMM, I've always loved photography. I've actually enjoyed it more as I've lost my sight due to being able to  zoom into pictures and see all the detail that I now miss. :)

    I still get blurry shots as well from time to time,it's the low shutter speed that does it when hand held even with a built in stabilizer or just plain my fault.With a phone camera and some compact cameras it is the holding it at arms length that causes blur as well.Tuck your elbows(both)into your stomach as a kind of rest and use the self timer more so you can get steady while the countdown begins,2-5 seconds is best, if you use the 10 second one then it is too long for most captures.

    Using the self-timer is a really great tip @CMM! Thank you for sharing :)
