Hi guys,

I'm new so first of all thanks to everybody for this wonderful Forum.

I've just started using a Reflex and l would need please to have few suggestions about optimal settings for :

• Day Street Photos with both still and moving subjects.
• Low Light Street Photos indoor and outdoor

The City would be SHANGHAI

Like already stated in the subject line I have a Canon 7D + Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM


• Please when/if answering consider that I DON'T want to buy any new lens/Camera I just need to use what I have at its best.

• Please keep in mind that I'm absolutely new so be patient and explain things step by step

Thanks in advance!!
