CS kenar 'star-struck' liao!
Good place to learn is our portrait and poses section. Take a few portrait shots and post it there. You'll get lots of useful comments.
Another way is to join photoshoos. There are always a few every weekend. During photoshoots observe what others are doing and ask to look at their shots. Chat with them, you can learn lots.

Since when did Canon make such a lens? Please take a photo of this lens and show us, Fatt-kor...! How much did it cost? US$80,000 ???
70-200 f/2.8L already rather heavy, and yet you say that the 70-200 f/1.2 is not that heavy? You must look like this
i am also shoot a lot of my kids photos by using my 18-200mm f3.5-5.6, shooting outdoor usually is not a problem for me, the pics turn out nice. but when come to indoor, like indoor playgroup, science center...etc.. most of pics blur. i am wondering if 50mm F1.4 will be the solution? (i dun feel comfortable using flash on kids).

there's a lot of debate about usage of flash on kids.
Personally I feel that bounced flash is very safe, especially if no irritation is felt.
One usually experiences irritation first, and only with more intense light would damage likely occur.
If one does not even feel irritation, then it's likely (in my opinion, I stress again) that no damage is done.
Use a big powerful flash like EX430 or EX580 and tie a small card in front to block any possible direct light.
Hmm.... I must say, Mr Chow Yun Fatt's newbie welcome thread must be one of the longer (if not the longest) newbie welcome threads in CS.
Well, the next Mr Chow's thread may just be the $2million block buster, breaking even Avatar's record.
Of course there are limitations. If you are trying to shoot running kids in a dark room and then expect that your camera can handle it without any blurs, you are just asking for a miracle (or a Nikon D3s/Canon 1Ds Mark IV)
