    What kind of digital camera do you have? The best way to start out is to get out there and start taking pictures. I think everyone would agree of that being a DO.

    From the advice I have learned from others here, if after awhile your interest grows then you can upgrade to a better camera. But I think for now you can do just fine with the camera that you have.

    To edit photos most people use Photoshop. But like I said give yourself some more time before you go out and spend a lot of money. Hopefully I helped in some way. I'm sure others will be able to add on or elaborate on things i've said.

    Good luck and have fun!

    There really are no stupid questions here. Dark rooms are rapidly becoming a thing of the past now that the digital age is here. Dark rooms are for developing film and prints. These days, the computer is taking the place of the dark room.

    You've come to the right place. Browse the forums, get ideas, ask questions...

    You've started the journey.

    Welcome!

    Another great place to start is in a library. Your schools library should have plenty of books on photography. Then is you have any specific questions you can ask them here.

    As well, your college library may have a media center open for you to use. If so you may already have access to Photoshop and others.

    Welcome and good luck.
