quick beginner tips:
• learn composition. "Rule of thirds" will make a picture look better than just centering the subject, BUT it can also get stale if everything you shoot is framed the same. Just do what looks good.
• black and white photography has a stigma about being a cop-out for people to call generic pictures 'artsy', but don't let that stop you. B/W is great to begin shooting in because it focuses more on composition of shapes and light without having to worry about colors, which could make an otherwise interesting shot look ugly at times.
• shoot in RAW format, or if you've got a big enough card, raw+jpg so you have basic copies of your shots. RAW saves ALL data about the photo, so if you're shooting b/w and open it in photoshop's special RAW editor (or the better choice, adobe lightroom), it will actually come back as the original color shot. RAW processing also allows for more drastic light changes than basic jpg files.
• don't use auto mode. 'P' (program) is basically auto, but you have control over your ISO settings (sensitivity of the sensor), whether you pop your flash, white balance, etc. Lower ISO is better quality, but requires more light/time so you'll have slower shutter speeds. harder to hand-hold and get a still shot. Shooting at 400-650 should be fine for most OK lit situations, 100 or 200 is fine in direct sunlight. 1200 would be dimmer indoor settings, if not more. It's easy to fiddle with the setting.
should be a good start to play with
I think they beat me to it. :)
That looks awesome man, glad I could help.

I could've gone away with if it wasn't for you meddling kids!
