This is an admirable goal! That said, there is a flood of information on the internet, which can be confusing to a beginner. Listed below are some sensible tips that will help you see a rapid improvement in the quality of your shots.
And the tips just keep on coming! Make sure you understand the significance of shutter speeds. These shutter speeds are indicated by the letters P, A, S and M. “P” means program mode.

Make sure there is a distance between the subject and the background to get this effect.
Most importantly, photography should be fun. It is an invaluable tool for capturing a moment in time that could otherwise be forgotten. Just remember to have fun while taking photos, you will be much happier and want to learn additional skills.
