I have a D40 and use a 35 mm 1.8 fixed lens indoors to take pictures of my new born son. I changed all the settings to what Ken Rockwell suggested on his blog , I was curious what everyone thought of that.

I tried to take Raw photos over the weekend, but figuring out how to use the manual modes of my camera, and trying to learn a photo software like Aperture to touch up each photo is a bit much right now. I'd rather take great photos (without much, if any at all, post production.)

I was curious what picture settings are considered to be the "agreed upon one for great photos of your kids, nice colors that "pop" for the D40. And if anyone (or everyone) is using all the suggested ideas given on Ken Rockwell's blog.
