Aweee thanks "neardark", all comments are greatly appreciated. I'm still trying to decide if I should take this to the professional side.

Question for all T1I users!!

Q.) On the custom options section in your menu where its like 11-13 different things you can check. Does anyone recommend changing any of these away from default for clearer/sharper images or just better images all around? I dont really know what half of them mean. Can someone help with this?

I turned up the sharpness and color sat on mine. I like the results better than the default settings.

I'm not talking about user preferences. Im talking about on the custom section farther down the menu....

last Saturday e-session with a client. Santa Monica Pier.

It was not a good day to go to the beach... marine layer was there and the sun wasn't out.. but hey what can you do? weather nowadays are so unpredictable and you cannot trust the forecast. I had a hard time with John. He's one of those types that is not fond of pictures. I tried talking and joke around with him to keep him relaxed and cooperate. At the end of the day, I managed to get good shots of him in the mood.

I don't have the camera w/me, but from the couple I can remember:
Long Exposure noise reduction is off.
High ISO speed noise reduction - off
Auto Lighting Optimizer - off
Expanded ISO - on

I shoot raw and do the noise reduction in post.

As far as I understand, those settings work for JPEG (correct me if I am mistaken). Even if it did affect the RAW, I'd leave it off as well since I prefer to do everything (noise reduction) myself in post. Highlight tone priority and auto lighting optimizer can help with shadows and highlights, but again I prefer to just do adjustments manually, so those are off as well.

This is just my preference, of course others will have different opinions and different custom options.

I do same as hieu. The other settings for NR are to strong. I basically turn off the in camera processing gimmicks like auto light optimiser as well.

I turn (C.Fn 10) "Shutter/AE lock button" to "1: AE lock/AF".

That basically means you use the * button (near your right thumb) to focus and the shutter button meters for light. I like this because I prefer the camera to meter separately for light rather than at the time of focusing. It also means for a series of shots (e.g. on a tripod) you can focus once and then just keep shooting.

The only time I put it back to normal (focus AND metering with shutter button) is when I am shooting moving objects because I find it easier to continually focus with AI Servo with the shutter button.

^^ I do the back button focus too, except 100% of the time.

Only had my T1i a little over a week, been playing with it constantly to see what it can do. I was a little disappointed in the lens 55-250 since my LX10is will zoom a whole lot further. I'm pleased with the camera overall, there are so many features about it to play with.

I plan on going to Balboa Park sometimes next week if I get a chance and do some real shooting there.

This is just one of my mess around photo's. The contractor wanted his paint brushes back.
