The boys are 11 months today. I cannot believe they will be a year old in one month! Micah has taken off with new skills this month. He is pulling up and starting to hands and knees crawl. Mason is mostly hands and knees crawling now. They both jabber constantly. Mason makes all kinds of sounds. They are both so fun.

If anyone has any suggestions, I am having trouble with my new DSLR camera taking fuzzy shots if I set it on no flash.

Brett is a DSLR genius!! He knows a lot of great tips and simple ways to use the camera if you ever want any advice!! When you understand the basics, it all makes a lot more sense. I still want to take a class though and I want him to take one too. The more informed you are, the better pics you can take and thus almost eliminating the need for professional pics!!
On another note, I cannot believe your boys are almost a year. WOW!!

Such cuties! I can't believe they are 11 months old already. Where does the time go?

Change the ISO setting on your camera or open the aperture more (or both). ISO is the basically film speed, aperture is how big the hole in your lens is. You want to keep your ISO as low as possible, because the higher it is the more grain/noise you will have in your photo. The more open your lens is, the more shallow your depth of field (meaning the more open, the more blurred your background will be), which can be nice, but also can be harder with moving children. (A little thing I always try to do when open wide is to focus exactly on their eyes. If the eyes are sharp, other things can get by being a little more blurred.) You aren't getting enough light for the photo to be taken fast enough, so it's a little fuzzy.

I don't know what kind of camera you have, so I can't walk you through where to do that (but perhaps you know anyway). It will also help if you are closer to your natural light source...say your child is facing the window instead of away from the window. (Our light is so limited part of the year that it seems my photos are all taken in the same parts of two rooms in my house =D LOL!)

...feel free to e-mail me if you want more specific instructions on HOW to change those two settings. My e-mail is listed on my profile page.

My understanding is if you aren't using a flash the camera will keep the lens open longer to let the appropriate light in. So if you have fast movers they'll be a little fuzzy. Try adjusting the ISO.
