I'm really interested in low light situations and how to get a clean crisp photo especially with people.
As soon as it is a little darker or for indoor pics I tend to get photos that have a little blur. I have a tripod and have started doing that using that lately, and it does make it a little better.

There are a few ways around this though without a tripod. What type of camera are you using?

There are three elements you need to learn in manual all will affect your lighting technique.
Iso- this is the grain in your image as well as light so you can adjust this from 100 to 5000 depends on the camera but the higher the number the more light and the more grain but you need to balance this with
Shutter speed - 1 sec - 1/1000 sec or higher. Rule of thumb don't shoot without a tripod at less the 50th of a second otherwise the shutter is open and catching movement. As you already know this affects the light too! So the lower the shutter speed the more light. Try balancing this with the iso for example 50 sec with 1000 iso
Depth of field - also plays a huge part each lens is different but I'm taking a guess that your lens is 18-55mm?? This lens lowest depth of field ( the blur) is 5.6 now the lower the depth of field the more light. But the lower the depth of field the more blur!

Yes I have the 18-55, Lately I've been using my wide angle a lot 10-22. I have a telephoto zoom, which was the first I bought for some reason thought it was a must have, it's actually what I use least.

@misskittyfantastico - I've been AWOL for a couple of weeks. We've moved house, and got everything unpacked. I was going to get the camera out the weekend before I went back to work.... and DH was offered a job interstate, starts at the end of the month. So now we're madly packing again, and trying to find a house in QLD. I'm interested in seeing your shots, but unfortunately can't reciprocate at the moment!
@Sigreg - thanks for the tips! I will get the camera out and practice when I'm not running around like a headless chook. Any tips on shooting into the light? My nieces and nephews (understandably) really dislike standing with the sun in their faces for photos. I usually try to angle it so it isn't directly behind them, but sometimes the background leaves a lot to be desired. DS is not interested in posing for the camera. It's a matter of finding a moment where he's not moving a mile a minute and clicking away!

Downloading my photos and thought I'd share a couple here!
ETA oh such a shame I didn't upload this properly, it's such poor resolution- but it's such beautiful architecture it's the town hall in Munich.
