Welcome aboard!

And please give us some details. Like, what camera? What settings? The way to eliminate grain is to shoot at a low ISO -- just how low, depends on the camera. Low-ISO shots in dimness may require using flash. Lack of colour could be caused by improper exposure, either too dark (underexposure) or too light (overexposure), or could be caused by flare (shooting into bright lights). Tell us more about the problems and we can possibly help. Cheers!

Welcome! Sample pics might help to figure out what might help. (Especially sample pics with EXIF info).

I think we all feel like beginners from time to time, and the new cameras can do so much it's hard to remember sometimes. I've found a lot of great help here, though. Have fun learning.
