    Each low light situation is going to involve lots of variables. Film sensitivity i.e. ISO is ONE of the aspects you have to consider.

    Photography is all about light. When we have a very little light our "job" gets harder. Every possible solution brings possible defects and downsides.

    1. You can increase ISO. This is the amount of "sensitivity" that the film has to light. In the world of digital it is roughly approximated although the means that the end is achieved is different. The down side is with greater sensitivity is increased "noise". You can see the grain acctually being created if you are working with film. In Digital its the same effect but not for the same reasons.

    2. You can slow down your shutter speed. Since the shutter controls the amount of time the light sensitive medium is exposed, film or CMOS, when the shutter is open longer there is more light beamed in. Down side is obvious. If anything in the scene you are exposing changes, both states and all the transitive states of light will be exposed and recorded. That translates into blur for movement and haloing for most frequency's of light. So, your hand shake will make blured edges and that hockey game by candle light will look like a Salvador Dali nightmare.

    3. Wider apeture. The lens you use will have a finite maximum capability of allowing light into your camera. You can control the light from the maximum down to the minimum the lens can stop down. This mesurement is the "F" number. The limitation here is most lense wont "open up" as much as you want. And "zoom" lenses tend to have less capability. As you open the lens the less DOF you have.

    This is simplified. There are whiz bang scientific types on here who can greatly elucidate. Hope this helps.

    Your MPG may vary.

    Feel free to correct me guys.

    TyJax I really appreciate the info I knew a majority of it, its good to know I have a fairly good understanding how to go about it any other suggestions you guys can recommend for other shot situations that you've had I would appreciate.

    Geepers! Those things always scare the hell out of me. Suffice it to say from your exif data a wider apeture would have helped if it was available. if you have the raw you can now try to pull up highlights by "pushing" the exposure. With the D40 I think you could have gone a little higher ISO with out too much grain. A speedlight might have helped fill in depending on the distance you were from the evil beasts from before the last ice age.

    Thank you TyJax I honestly insist on improving with a little criticism and guidance which both are appreciated, I think i will be able to achieve most of the shots I'm looking for which is a shot which utilizes the ambient light as close to its natural form as possible.

    -All are welcome to comment with suggestion from setting to angle shots all is very appreciated.
