    Greetings, and welcome!

    What is your budget?

    Where can you obtain a camera?

    What is your tolerance for learning technology?

    For most beginners I recommend a small "point-and-shoot", which means a pocket-size, inexpensive, automatic camera. Learning composition is the primary task for beginners, and a camera that will produce acceptable photographs without much input from the photographer will ease the learning process.

    As you posted this in the Nikon camera section my recommendation is the Nikon D5500 with the kit lens and add a 35mm f/1.8G lens.

    The well known saying is "the best camera is the camera you have with you". For that reason I suggest you evaluate if you want to carry around such a camera or use the cell phone camera.

    I find it easier to learn many of the concepts of photography with a DSLR vs a cell phone camera as most instructional material available is geared towards that type of camera. Of course any camera will let you work on composition and taking that 3D view and turning it into your own two dimensional interpretation.

    Firstly, I would like to thank you for your recommended. My budget is around 200 USD and I'm from Thailand. I am really determined to learn about taking the photo. When I see other pics from many people I feel happy and I want to be good at like the other one who take the photo beautifully. :)

    Many thanks for your advising. I've searched for information on the internet and I finally found the camera which suits for me and it's not expensive because I have not much money.

    Yes, use it.

    The first thing you must learn is composition.

    Learn what make a good photograph better than a poor photograph, and concentrate on getting good ones.

    One of the maintenance guys here shoots with his cell phone camera, and he is an astoundingly accomplished photographer with it. He asked me about "good cameras" one time, and I asked to see what he had been shooting. He showed me stuff shot on his phone that was very,very good. The current smartphone cameras, since the iPhone 4 and newer, and the various Samsungs, and so on, are pretty good cameras for semi-wide angle photography. If you use the phone camera like it is a "real camera", the results can be quite good.

    I like the square format that Instagram has used for a number of years. Shooting to a square, or for a square, is an interesting experience. The square forces you to crop off a lot of an image, and that is a useful ability, to be able to envision the picture within the larger picture. The Instagram filter set and editing tools are actually pretty danged useful. I would use the phone camera as much as you can, and use the tool with very serious focus on the pictures it can make.

    I'm glad that you comment about my thread and I would like to say Thank you to you. Now I just have cell phone but it's not very good to take photos. How about your IG ? Can I follow your IG? because I don't have square account.
