Welcome to the forum, Chris

I think the best way to get the hang of a DSLR, or any digital camera, is to take plenty of pictures whilst looking carefully at the resultant images, noting what works and what doesn't. Unlike film cameras, you can see the results immediately and the cost of taking a picture is minimal. The best advice I can give with regard to long exposures is to invest in a good-quality tripod and head plus a cable or remote release. I am not familiar with the E-410 but have a look through the hand-book to see if there is an "anti-shock" feature which raises the mirror a few seconds before the shot is taken in order to reduce camera shake.

This is a very friendly forum and people here are only too glad to give help and advice. I hope you will be able to post some of your images here soon.

Cheers,

JohnGG
