I use a Canon EOS 500D and the kit lens which I absolutely love using. I try to not use the auto settings unless I just want a quick shot or something. I mainly use M (manual).
I'm still learning myself and I love just playing around with the different settings.
I then edit my pictures using Photoshop cs5 (curves, layers, saturation, actions, contrast etc.).
I've learned a lot from a photography forum that I'm on. Can't link to it here, but search POTN in google.
