I'm having trouble taking moving pics of the babies, and also indoor photos always have an orange tint and blurry on poor lighting.

Orange tint is due to "Tunston Lighting" in the home.
There noramlly is a setting to compensate for this.

Moving Pictures :
You may be experiencing blurring due to poor light.


The Key :
If you had lots of light you wouldnt be having any problems.
You could have a fast shutter speed or slow.
Point i'm making is that with lots of light you have lots
of choices, with poor light your choicies are reduced.

Fast Shutter Speed : Sports mode
If you have lots of light a fast shutter speed will
do what you want it to do with the results you want.
But with poor light, the picture will come out dark.

Slow Shutter Speed : Night
Typically the slower the shutter speed
the more light you can let in, and also leave the
shutter open to allow light in too.
Down side : if the image moves its blured.


So with the Baby's waddi
Increase the light around you or use a flash wink

Actually if you can force the flash to come on when you
want it may help to get the results you want smile

Hope that helps as a guide.
I use the word shutter as thats how i was taught when
cameras had moving parts lol.

I do adjust the WB to compensate for the indoor un-natural light.

I dont really like to use the flash around the babies tbh

would like some tips and pointers on aperture, shutter speed, ISO, macro focus and BKT whatever that is)

White balance

Example :
Your subject is in front of a window and its lighter
then the room your in. So you compensate with white balance
so the image your trying to picture becomes visible.

Macro
Is for close up shots within 20cm normally.

ISO / Shutter Speed kinda go hand in hand.

Apature
Its like the iris in your eye.
It opens and closes, but its mainly used to get depth of field.
meaning you know those pictures where the subject is in focus
but the background is not. You can create those effects with
your apature.

BKT
Could that be black and white ? (probably not)

If you can adjust the exposure (usually called EV), this will help compensate when the background of the image is extremely dark in comparison to the forground or if the lighting is too bright and the camera is struggling to see the forground image.

The higher the ISO, the higher the sensitivity. However, the higher the ISO, the more noise in a shot. Its hard to say what the top ISO is for an individual camera, as each make and model uses different sensors.

Apeture - as Mark says pretty much.

Macro mode - its for getting focused when taking close up images as Mark says, but the distance will vary considerably on the individual camera, so refer to the manufacturers guide if ye can.

BKT - Where did you find that setting? I have a feeling it "could" be bracketing, but then I wouldnt put money on it lol. Basically what bracketing does is it takes 3 continuous frames, each with different exposure settings. That way, you can get the best shot of the 3. One or two should be over-exposed, one or two should be under-exposed and one should hopefully be just about right.

Photometry - Im not sure if ye cam has, but some modern ones are starting to get it, if it doesnt dont worry. If it does, ye can change the light metering of the image when it is underexposed and it can assist with nighttime photographs etc...

If you camera has a night mode, try it. As you already adjust the white balance to help compensate there isnt much to say about that.

If your photos come out rather dark etc, dont despair, a bit of tidying up and editing using Photoshop or similar will always help bring the image exposure up.

With regards to blurry photos, there isnt too much you can do about it unless your camera has image stabilisation, increase the ISO and shutter speed will get less shake but in darker conditions you will probably still get it. Hold the cam with your arms against your chest, breathe in and hold your breath when releasing the shutter is the best advice. And hope lol.
