Take photographs, look at photographs, live and breathe images. Study good art, look through lots of magazines and newspapers. Constantly keep up on the evolving technology, but always stay focused on good composition and eternal themes. Remember that gear and technology makes the job easier, but is no substitute for a trained and analytial mind. Spelling isn't that important, btw.

Some people may think taking pictures is easy.... easy to click the camera but are your pictures good? It's not actually that simple to be a photographer honey. :) You need to learn about proper lighting, angle and etc.

There's actually home-based courses for this. One such course is, but of course there are more options you can Google.
