I do lol. I can't find my Digital SLR, so i've been using my Sony DSC-W7. The button to turn up res is the button bottom right of the screen with the little trashcan over it. If you're in a manual shooting mode, a menu should come up and ask how many "M" you want your shots to be recorded at. Also, if you're using the Sony's, I think the first thing you should look at is your EV or "exposure value". It looks like you have the exposure value set a little low. Try running a few shots through +.7 through -.3. Depending on the lighting you have, it normally gives me a pretty decent shot. Next, check your ISO. The lower the ISO, the less sensitive the shot is to light, and the more light you will need.. IE if you're doing a night shot, you'd want to run at least an ISO of 400 depending on how much light you have. For daytime shots, i'd run an ISO of 100, and all the way up to 400, since that's as high as my Sony goes. Lastly.. TRIPOD! I tripod is an easy way to get steady, unblurred shots. You'd be amazed at how much difference a tripod could make in your photos. Oh yea, and another little trick I use is leaving the White Balance at "Cloudy".. the camera brings out a little warmth with the picture everytime
Anyways, hope that was helpful.. And hope to see you at the photoshoot / meet!
