My brother the ROCK STAR

My brother's band had a show last night at a (not so) nearby park, and he again blew me away with his "cool kid" looks and his outrageous talent. He's the one jamming on the left.

Ok, so I know that I desperately need to pay attention to the photography lessons on on the blogs of Pioneer Woman and Mck Mama. It was dusk so it would turn out like this with my regular flash and with the "night" setting it would be lighter but blurry. What needs to change? The aperture? See..I don't even know where to start. Back to topic. I love watching my brother on stage. He's so talented and confidant, and he plays it off like he doesn't care if we are there or not, but I know that he loves it when we come to cheer him on. Shaun...you rock! I love you little man. Here ends the Shaun commercial.

Side note: Does anyone know how to post a link without the word being underlined?

Hey there Jess, it's Jeff Printy!
Thought I'd pop in here as you had some questions.
The last one first, in order to have links without underlines you have two options, if you always want to have links without underlines you can edit the template of your blog and add this before the </head> tag:

<style type="text/css">
a {text-decoration: none}
</style>

Or, if you just want to have one plain link without the underline you can go into HTML edit mode for your blog post, find the link in question...
It will look something like this:

<a href="http://link.com/index.html">I am a link</a>

and add this to the a href tag:
style="text-decoration:none", so it now looks like this:

<a href="http://link.com/index.html" style="text-decoration:none">I am a link</a>

Anyway, let me know if you have any questions about that.

As to the photography issue. Yes, you will want to have a wide aperture setting because naturally the people on stage are moving around and will get blurry if you decrease the shutter speed to let more light in.
It's also good to know the best way to hold the camera to reduce shake. Another thing that helps low-light situation is if you have image stabilization on your camera, then, as long as you hold it fairly still, you can take shots with a bit longer exposure and not get blurry pictures. Hope this helps!
