Hi Dan,

Welcome to Nikonians!
You can upload images to your User Gallery and then provide a link to them in your post.

You might find On Handholding Technique helpful.

Another thing to keep in mind is the Minimum Shutter Speed Rule of Thumb to prevent blur due to camera shake
Minimum Shutter Speed = 1 / 1.5 x focal length of lens
so at 50mm the minimum shutter speed = 1/75 rounded up to 1/80th sec.
Proper use of VR should allow you to use a slower shutter speed within reason. Keep in mind that you must allow about a second or so for the VR mechanism to settle before you capture the image.

Camera Basics useful as well.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
