    So my 50mm came in today and most of my pics came out super blury. I dont use the manual setting on my D90 because of my lack of knowledge. I had the camera set on portrait setting with no flash and this is the result. Any idea why this one came out this way?

    This one was take with much better results.

    Your first it out of focus pretty bad, the second is a bit bright from the flash, but the third looks more properly exposed. Not much happening compositionally, but you probably want to fix your exposure/focus issues first. Congrats though on the new lens, I love mine.

    That's why your shots came out the way they did. You let the camera decide what to shoot, and it did. F/2.8 on an F/1.8 lens, is you dumping 1 1/3 stop worth of light and shooting at 1/8th of a second. Get the camera off MANUAL. It's a digital camera. These are pictures of your kids and your. . .female in the kitchen - it's not like you're shooting a shot of Jesus Christ reborn; you CAN experiment. Theres no reason to be shooting in Auto Mode - any of the other programmed auto modes - Aperture priority, Shutter priority or Programmed Auto - offer more flexibility than straight auto.

    Is there any documentation that I can read on proper shutter speed, iso and f stop?

    Looks like camera shake to me.

    Set the camera to Av and adjust the aperture to f/1.8 and then try it again. You should get better results.

    Naw. Good to see you taking it off auto. Nice little self portrait action.
