I found this tutorial over on the 10D-7D forum. It is very good and has a lot of useful information for beginners. If your photos are not coming out sharp, get out of Automatic Mode and give these tips a try!

To do zone focus by locking focus using the manual lens switch is lame.

just use custom functions to use back button.

when you removed your thumb from the back button the focus locks.  I can't imagine his method to loose the plane of focus as he reaches over for the switch.

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!
