I started "taking" digital photographs in 2005. I started "making" digital photographs several years later. When you first get a camera, you have a lot to learn. As you try to figure out all the settings and features of your camera, you point it at "stuff" and click and then look at the display to see what you got. I call this clicking and hoping approach "taking" a photo. And there's nothing wrong with that! It's how you learn. The great thing about digital, as compared with film, is that your experiments cost you nothing but time. Lots and lots of time looking at the photos you took, deleting the bad ones, tweaking the better ones.
