Thanks Kex. Was I correct in the white balance perception? I am guessing I can darken or lighten the picture using the white balance.
almost right.

The white balance is responsible for the realness of colours.
You can imagine, that a picture taken outside with the sun as the main light source will look different to a photo taken in a room with neon lamp - or at least the colours would be different.
Therefor you can adjust the white balance, so the colours will look natural in all different kinds of light.

There is another setting for the brightness of the picture. It's the AV. you can manually set it in 1/3 steps up or down. It will affect the shutter speed of your cam.

Ok, got it. I have an option on my cam for different types of lights, such as halogen or regular element lights. As well as the sun I believe. I will read the manual again.
