Try to keep your camera with you as much as possible
Enjoy the process of learning
Take advantage of the free learning resource
Keep all the basics in the head
Take regular photographs
Always experiment

It is quite impossible to take the best and the most professional looking photos with an inexpensive camera and other accessories. But you may not need that right away. So it will be foolish to buy something like this. Novice photographers should practice with the inexpensive equipment at first and gradually move on buying the expensive ones.

Try to use a tripod. Many people do not like using a tripod, because they think that this is an inconvenience to carry. There are a lot of portable tripods that you can fold and keep it in your bag and carry it anywhere you go.

You never know when you come across a very photogenic scene. Then you will regret why you did not bring your camera along. Always try to carry your camera in every single sphere you travel.

People get bored and impatient as they go along the learning curve. Try to enjoy the learning procedure as you go along learning new things every day. Always keep a diary or a planner and write down what are the new things that you have learnt that day. Someday, when all these knowledge will pile up together, you will have every potentials of being a famous photographer. 

There are a lot of places and institutes that offer free seminars on photography. Attend those. Look for free learning resources on the internet and also join different webinars. Joining here and staying in touch with the community will give you a lot of skills and knowledge in this specific field of photography, which you could not have learnt in your photography class.

Always keep the basics of photography in your head. No matter how developed and experienced photographer you become, always keep the basics in the head. Remember, photography is all about inserting the right moment in the given frame.

Do not take a break from photography. This is like learning a new language. If you do not  practice, you will tend to forget everything that has taken you months to master. Take photos regularly.

Always experiment with your camera. Try to learn new techniques and tactics about your camera and how to make the best out of it. Do more experiment with the photos you take. Try to think outside the box.
With all these tips in your head, and sometime of practice, you will be able to reach the highest level of becoming a professional photographer.
