Does anyone know of a moderately priced school that I can take to help improve my understanding of my camera. I really want to shoot crisp, clean pictures like I see here and I am only getting close to that in auto, and that is not why I bought this camera. So yeah...a recommended school would be appreciated. Or other ideas too.

IMO, you're already in one of the best schools. The "Sticky"s at the top of each section are info that we think is important for you to get to know.

And most questions have already been asked and answered here, for instance Post #6 in Major newbie needing direction
The "Reply" button allows you to ask questions if/when you need clarification.
Our Thread Search function, or Google will find a ton of info on similar subjects if the links at the very bottom left hand corner of the page don't lead you to similar threads.

And you might try visiting the best camera specific source we all have: CAMERA LESSONS by Canon: = Enjoy! Digital SLR camera = (external link)

I really want to shoot crisp, clean pictures...

Maybe this will help: Virtual Camera (external link)

Thanks, that actually sounds the most moderately priced and probably best class I could possibly find. I didn't realize how much information would be here. Up until this morning the only places I have visited are the photo sections, sale sections and equipment sections.

the best way to learn to use your camera is read up on apeture and shutter speed. Then start photography in apeture priority mode. It helps. You pick your apeture size, and the camera automatically picks your shutter speed for you according to lighting conditions. As you shoot in different apeture modes you will get a feel of the look that you want . Aslso after you achieve the look that you are going for, you can start paying attention to what shutter speed your camera is using and then you can learn to adjust your shutter shpped manually. After that I just started googling different image types to see how to achieve that. You really can learn almost anything just by googling now. Then just post your pics for cc so that people can tell you how they think you can improve. If you want to pm me, I have some links that might help as well.
