Thank you all very much for the replies
I do believe it was camera shake i just didn't know what i was doing wrong being new to the dslr world and all. All of your comments really helped espically pgtips that helps alot thanks
One thing though, pgtips you said IS decreases shutter speed by two stops, what exactley is a stop i'd like to fully understand rather than guess :p.
Leo thanks for that about the DOF sometimes a shallow DOF is nice but it's also nice to have more in focus, it helps to know that thanks.
Ok so i understand now that one of and probably the best way is either a tripod or faster shutter speed. When using a faster shutter speed less light enters and you get a darker image so apart from flash and iso is there anything else that can be done? or just post processing?
Thanks alot for all your help it really does help i'm very new to all this and really enjoy it and want to learn thanks again everyone
