    Well, first tell us what a "regular" digital camera is ;)

    a Point&shoot?
    a DSLR?

    If the former, then it really depends alot on the model I would guess ... if the latter, well, just set it to manual or to shutter priority and set it as stated in the manual (usually turning one of the wheels close to your shutter release).

    turn the dial on the top to "Tv" or "M" mode....you can adjust shutter speed in those modes....but i recommend you do it using the "Tv" mode only....."M" mode would require a bit understand of exposure

    yet....another way and the best......read the manual of your camera......that is the best way to understand the basic operation of your camera
