    Any good art or photography book can teach you. Another way to learn is to scan magazines for photos you like. Study the photos and try to determine what it is about the picture that caught your attention in the first place. Look at the composition, lighting, color and texture. See if you can determine the direction and type of light used. Look at the composition and see if it follows the "rule of thirds" or does the photographer/artist break those rules. Would the photo work as well if it were in B/W instead of color? Sometimes, we depend on color to make a photo work, but bear in mind that color can be used as a composition element. Finally, just start shooting pics and you'll start to learn what works and what doesn't.

    Cheers
