Essential yet often misunderstood, copyright is something it’s worth taking some time to get your head around. At it’s most basic level, copyright is exactly that, the right to copy. As the creator of a photograph, copyright belongs to you (and for 70 years after your death, your heirs) in most cases from the moment you press the shutter. Like any rule there are exceptions, those being when you give/sign copyright away such as under a work made for hire agreement, as an employee or if you negotiate the rights away at some point in time.
