Good Photography With Not so Good Camera
So, i've had my Canon A75 (3.2mp) Digital Camera for almost a year now, and i've learned it's ups and downs, tried all sorts of different angles, shutter speeds and etc. I find some of my pictures seem grainy and the colors don't stand out enough. I really enjoy taking pictures, and i always try to find something artistic or interesting, but having lived in this area for so long, i find it hard to find things that stand out. Everything seems so ordinary.
To sum things up, what are tips you could give me, or any other "beginner" photographer to find better pictures, and take better pictures with better quality.

A tip that really helped me, is to look at all the pics you like, and use the same angles and shit like that.
your father is a sick fuck for taking pictures of his daughter in a bikini and your grandma is a slut for being so close to breast like that. i bet shes thinking ' mmmm my granddaugther sure does have nice breasts, so firm and perky but too bad they dont beat mine cuz mine hang down to my knees and when im standing naked it looks like i have 2 sets of arms' - Lateralis
on the contrary, i think you need to explore new angles, maybe go to a part of town you've never been to before or are afraid to go to. just bike (or walk or drive) to a place and enjoy yourself.

its all about the photographer really. A 3.2 camera still takes great pictures

^it's definetly not all about the photographer. Obviously there are skills that are learned and picked up along the way which make a pro stand out from a soccer mom, but in photography equipment is everything.
If you want to take better pictures you need to continue to explore different techniques and different cameras. You're probably growing out of your 3mp cam pretty quickly and maybe need something new. Check out some digital SLRs like the Rebel and D-70 - those are probably a good step up and you'll be able to do less on the computer and more just while shooting to create the image you want.

as far as graininess and shitty color goes, that is your camera setting the ASA/ISO speed automatically in low light...if you can set it on your camera do so. if not, try to use shutter priority mode and a tripod and choose a longer shutter and maybe your camera will pick a less grainy speed. of course longer shutters wont help ski photos but just regular photos of still life may actually turn out better.
