I’ll add one more to my list. Shoot with a speed light to freeze the subject and negate the effects of camera shake.
JonahB was asking about getting sharp images so a lower ISO is a must. I hope I didn’t come across as suggesting always shoot at a low ISO. I regularly shoot up to 1600 ISO or much more; however, I don’t expect to get very sharp images above ISO 400. For all around indoor shooting in a large room I will usually shoot manual at ISO 800 with a speed light at f/4 so I don’t end up with a dark background which will occur if you shoot using with a flash and auto settings.
Here are some samples of the difference for indoor shooting at different ISOs. I don’t know if the differences show up in the compressed jpegs very well. The ISO 400 shot should be significantly sharper. All hand held.
