There are many interesting objects and landscape in World of Warcraft that make you really want to capture it. Here's info to make a screenshot for new players.
Capture it Edit
To capture a screenshot you can simply press "Print Screen" button (sometimes "PrtSc" on laptops). The screenshot will be saved in Screenshots folder inside your game client folder.
Here's the example:
Screenshot without character in shot Edit
Just keep roll up your mouse scroll until you got 1st person view and you will have a screenshot like this:
Screenshot without UI Edit
Press Alt-Z to remove the game UI (or AddOn UI) before you take your screenshot. After you're done, you can press Alt-Z to bring it back.
Examples with character in shot and without:
Before you upload Edit
Generally screenshots get named WoWScrnShot_MMDDYY_HHMMSS.jpg (where MMDDYY are 2-digit month, day, and year; and HHMMSS are local hours, minutes, and seconds).
Before you upload your screenshot, you should rename the file to something that describes what's in the screenshot, like: Frostsaber_mount_Stormwind_docks.jpg
WoWWiki discourages uploading generically names files, like WoWScrnShot_101511_221704.jpg
