This shows motion with a slow shutter speed. I used a shutter speed of 1" (which is 1 second, right?) and a 32 F-stop. The ISO was at 800.  It's pretty out of focus, but I think it would have been anyway since there's movement and the slow shutter speed. I guess the crib (which is not moving) is out of focus because I didn't use a tripod, no? There was some decent light coming in the window, but this was inside so it was still kind of dark.

Attempt 2: I turned on the overhead light so I could do shutter speed 1/50 and F-stop 4.5. ISO 800

Here's the link to my photo with movement that has a higher shutter speed. I used an ISO 800, shutter speed of 1/100 and 32 F-stop. Yes, those birdies are moving, but the fast shutter speed captured each one pretty clearly as opposed to all blurred like above.

This is an image with a wide open aperature. I used an ISO of 800, shutter speed of 1/50, and 4.5 aperature. The mobile is in focus, but the baby in the background is blurred.

This one has a smaller apertature of 14, shutter speed 1/14, and ISO800. See that the baby and the mobile are in focus (mostly).

Do I extra credit for taking one good photo using the rule of 3? (I had to post this.. because I was so proud of the photo and.. well, look how cute my little one is!?)
