|That is one high-def nose|

We also managed to solve our lighting problem, but not through any effort of our own. Since our apartment is pretty dimly lit, we were having to choose between taking blurry no-flash pictures or flash pictures of dogs with glowing demon eyes. For some unknown reason (we'll just call it magic), the D3200's flash doesn't make Mushroom's eyes glow.

And even though Badger's eyes still glow with regular flash, turning on the red-eye reduction function almost completely eliminates the problem.

Next up is the process of learning how to use the camera. These pictures were all taken in aperture priority mode, which I've found to be the easiest to use with flash. Is it strange that I think Mushroom looks better with a lower aperture number (around f/5) while Badger looks better with a higher aperture number (around f/18)?
Other DSLR-users, what settings do you use to photograph your dogs?
