BB, the best advice I can give you is to really familiarize yourself with the camera modes you have access to and learn the basics of shooting. Also know your general lighting conditions before you go anywhere you might take pictures. How many Megapixels is the camera? Do you have access to aperture priority mode (commonly labeled A or Av)?

+1 on that as well. Most cameras will turn off the preview when you go to press the shutter button again, but that does take more fractional seconds than just having it not show up in the first place.
