    Always read the manual. It offers more information than you think you already know. Otherwise you can check out this website. Lovely place to learn esp for beginners.

    Haa... Your 50mm f1.8 is a fast lens... much faster than your kit lens... You should try using that to capture sports action next time if you want to "freeze" the action under low light condition...

    Its quite difficult to take a "freezing" action of a person smashing under indoor lighting... Shutter speed is normally in the 1/1000sec range and aperture of kit lens is too small to compensate for that.. only way is to increase the ISO by alot.. but that will introduce noise... So, try it out with your f/1.8 first.. it should improve significantly...

    I'm no pro, but I like the shots of your food! I think they're pretty good IMO though haha.

    Mind sharing what lens you used? Your kit lens or the other =/? Just wondering
