Everything you could want to know about copyright is at www.copyright.gov the official US copyright website.

http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ1.html

This link should answer most of your questions.

At the moment you create a photograph, you own the copyright to that image. You don't have to do anything at all, but you'll probably want to take two further steps:

By putting a copyright mark (i.e. Copryight 2007 by Phil Photog ) on the image you are putting everyone else in the world on notice that this is your image and that you're going to work to protect your ownership. Then, by registering the image with the Copyright Office (see the reference that Z mentioned in his post), you gain important evidence that in fact it is your image and that you registered it on a certain date, in case later you have to prove that an image is yours.. say, if you have to ask someone to quit using your image, or if you have to sue for copyright infringement.

If you didn't register your copyright until after someone rips you off, all you can possibly get is actual damages - you'd have to prove that their use cost you money. Much better to register soon after creating the image!

Many photogs will mass-register hundreds or thousands of images at one time.. burn small jpegs onto a DVD data disk... the cost is only slightlyl more than registering a single image. Again, the information for registering visual works is on the Copyright Office's website.
