I just got my Olympus E-410 today. So far its been kinda challenging to figure out so I am just using Auto but I changed a few settings there. My manual setting just takes black pictures so IDK???

I did ISO 400!?

Anyways like I said still learning/basically have no idea what I am doing, these are just a few shots but what would your suggestions be on these, settings, places to learn more, etc...

He's such a cutie! Looks like you're off to a great start, it definitely takes some practice to get manual figured out but it gets easy after a while!

Your shots are probably black because the picture is underexposed. I don't know much about the camera you have, but when shooting indoors you are doing to probably need a low shutter speed (1/100 is the absolute lowest I would go with kids) and have your aperture as low as possible as well. I usually shoot around 2.2 but some lenses don't go that low.

Here's a good website for understanding manual mode a little more...

Yeah I have noticed just playing around I am understanding more what each thing does and have been adjusting things here and there. I'm most proud about using the eyepiece and not the LCD to take pics I never thought I could go back to shooting like that, lol.

Thanks for all your tips, I LOVE the poster board tip b/c lets face it, I'm super cheap hehe
