Amateur Photography

I’m often asked what kind of camera I have and if I have any tips for getting started in photography. I usually feel uncomfortable when asked this because I honestly feel like most of the time I don’t know what I’m doing. Partly this is because I don’t have any formal training what-so-ever, and partly because I really don’t know what I’m doing.
