aperature and other things I don't understand

I've been trying to mess around with my camera today. I did something big for me. I switched it to manual mode. (gasp! I lead such an exciting life, don't I?) Unfortunately, my manual mode was stuck with who-knows-what settings, leaving all of my pictures black. Not black and white. Just black.

After getting some online help via facebook (seriously, how did I ever function with out that?? ha!) I got it to have color. Then, I spent over 30 minutes, trying to find the manual to my camera. Once said manual was found, another 10 or 15 minutes to figure out how to change the aperature.

I found it. But, the only subject that I could get a "good" picture with was a pacifier. Nice.

I messed around for a while up in I's room with some natural light and some with the flash. The results were, well, Meh.

At least the subject is cute.

I think those are pretty good pictures! I am still playing with all the settings on my camera too, it can be confusing.

The last two look good! He's such a cutie.

What camera are you using?

I can't even tell you the number of pictures I have of little people lined up on the table. They are my favorite non moving subjects when I am trying to figure out something new with my camera.
