    Welcome to the forums! You have an excellent eye for composition.(how you arrange the subject you are taking a picture of to get the most attractive shots) I recommend read read read, and shot shot shot. Check out the library for sources. Read your camera's manual front to back and then back to front. But most importantly get out there and shoot. Practice makes perfect!

    Then your on the right track. Photography books can help put what you learned about in your camera in your manual to work. Look for digital photography books if possible. A lot of books will cover topics related to film. It doesn't hurt to learn, but doesn't really apply to the basics you need to learn starting out. Check out websites such as this forum, and even youtube can be a great source for exploring new ideas and techniques. Then you actually get to see the technique put to use instead of reading about it.

    One of your biggest benefits to your career is your age. You have plenty of time. Try not to learn bad habits, they take longer to break then they do to make.

    Reading is good. Here are a couple of books to look at:

    Understanding Exposure, Bryan Peterson

    The Photographer's Eye: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos, Michael Freeman


    I am sure there are other good books to start with, but these are very good books with a lot of info to help you get further than you are now.

    Oh yeah, remember to keep the good atitude and don't get cocky. ;)
