Keep your arms close to you while holding the camera, and position your hands on each side and the bottom of the camera. This keeps the camera steady and reduces the number of blurred shots you take. Keeping your hands under the lens and camera, instead of holding it at the top, will also help you avoid dropping the camera by accident.
Drop the background focus when you are photographing people. Having your background in full focus is bad; it will take away the focus from your subject. This loss of focus is achievable by increasing the distance between the person and the background.

They especially use power with the LED screen in use. Make sure they are charged fully before you start shooting. It is also a good idea to carry around spare batteries. This way you will never miss out on a great shot.
