Until you get more experience and are sure of how to use the various features, stick to the programmed auto mode.

Like VTphotg said stick with programmed auto for now.

I would check out steve's knowledge center for more info about shooting with a dslr. And you can check out www.dslrtips.com for some youtube video workshop that will get you started on shooting with a dslr.

You might take advantage of the guide mode which will preset the camera for the types of shots you want to take.
