Your question is a bit too open-ended to be meaningfully answered on this forum. Perhaps you could be more specific on your experience, with questions like,
"I've shot MiniDV / Super 8 / Super 16 / HDCAM and want to get the classic 'Wuthering Heights' gothic romance look, but in color - can you help me?"
As always, you will benefit from some reading up on the subject. This site has a "Cinematography Books" section full of useful and enjoyable reading. And of course, go out and shoot a bunch of stuff in your format of choice. MiniDV's are inexpensive to buy and shoot, and Super 8 cameras are dirt cheap on the used market. It's like shampooing. Shoot, process, view, repeat.
What's that old Chaplin line? "All you need is a girl, a park, and cop." Or the Truffaut line? "All you need is a girl and a gun!" (Or, for music videos, "All you need is a girl and a band!")

The first is to consider film school. It's not for everybody but it's a good start for a lot of people. At the very least, you'll be meeting likeminded people you may work with someday.
The second is to just start shooting, plain and simple.
