Please give a reason why it is not possible to use the automatic modes to shoot when the camera is more capable than the photographer?

"I have 50mm 1.8 (the cheapest 100 +) lense
sigh not sure to use of not." - quoted from myloplex
tis statement u made sure makes me feel dat u only believe in expensive stuff. 50mm f1.8 may not compare in sharpness 2 the 50mm f1.4 but imho its 1 of the few sharpest & most affordable lens ard. coupled with the aperture, it definitely is very useful in low light conditions.

One reason why I prefer M mode over P mode, but to each his own, I just feel comfortable working with M mode.
Attach your bounce card to the small side of the head that you're flashing. That should solve your vertical shots harsh shadows. Else use a slave flash.

"its not that i have no confidence. also can't turn down the offer liao ... my friend will kill me !!" - quoted from myloplex

no mah its the cheapest lense around so not sure if 'safe' to use for such an important occassion.
And guess what .. lucky I didn't use it, there was an embedded object ..about 1cm inside the lense ..cannot blow off. Dunno how it got there. Just send it to canon for servicing and they said its an 'affordable' lense so such things are bound to happen mah. I guess get for what you pay for.
But personally I like the 50mm coz of its 1.8 aperture. Feels good to be able to know you can achieve 1.8.
But its a 52mm lense opening only yar. A 77mm lense at f4 should allow more light in yar ? (not sure on this )

Sigh ..must pratice on this.

myoplex, in all honesty, currently the camera is too good for you.
What perptually baffles us is your inability to think for yourself. You've been asking us very basic questions which would've been resolved with a few simple minutes of logical deduction. Yet you're either too lazy to think on your own, or you simply lack the intelligence to do so. If the latter is true, please be prepared to accept a lifetime of mediocre photographs with a gem that comes every few years. If it's the former, well, then you are a really sad case.
Your inability to think on your own will create a fair number of deep-rooted problems in your progress in photography. Already your fundementals are extremely unsound, and the words "academic photographer" and "formulaic photographer" come to my mind when describing you. Not a good start you've gotten yourself off to.

Everyone liked it ...even asked if I was a professional (ha ha).... There was a professional photography whom I came to know (he's been in biz since 1978) and he said for a newbie, the pictures were well shot except the lighting could be improved.
Anyway, everyone's happy and i guess its quite an achievement for myself and a very good learning experience.

Anyway, lets not argue.
Want to help ... be like Ruth.
She has he biggest heart of all. She came down to help me without asking for any money or for any personal gain.
Maybe CS should have a section to list all the
1) pros (those that have won national/internation competitions)
2) pro wannabes (those who rely on photoshop always)
3) traders (those who come here just to Buy/sell)
4) newbies (like me !!)
This way we know that the pros are always right when it comes to advice .. haha !!

You don't want help. You want to be spoonfed. I make a distinction between that.

Erm anyway the wedding is over so this thread serves no further purpose.
