OliviaI have a G3 but with the optically-stabilised 14-45. That makes life a good deal easier. However, there are times when even that facility cannot guarantee sharpness in low light, and so the next best thing is to up the ISO speed (within reason - no more than 1600, ideally) and/or adjust the aperture until you see a shutter speed which will give you what you want. As Steinbeck says, especially if you are using a wide aperture - the f3.5 end of your lens, for example - the absolutely crucial factor is to focus on the eyes. Nothing esle really matters, because it's the eyes to which we are naturally drawn. Since you voted on my "Murderous Intent" image you'll get a better idea of what I mean.

The Engleberg Lake

The Engleberg LakeDeep, this is only my view, so feel free to ignore it. The original (V2) is a beautiful image, whereas V1 is slightly over-saturated for my tastes and I think V3 has been given a heavy dose of infrared! For what it is worth, when I first started to use Photoshop, I went crazy with it. It's only as one becomes more familiar with the program, or any of its equally complex siblings (I use Elements 10), that one comes to realise - especially with something as powerful as PS - that less is more, if you see what I mean. I hope you find this constructive and helpful.
