    Thanks to anyone who is willing to help :D I'm unfortunetly not so great at basics yet. So I'm wondering if anyone can really explain to me how I should know how to set up the settings for different lighting situations and so on. Its not that I don't understand the purpose, it's just that knowing what I want everything to be set at allways seems to be wrong. Besides time to teach me to automatically know what to do. Is there anything that can help me know how to correctly mix shutter speed and f-stop and have a good balance. I'm not completely dumb coming to this... but there is deffinetly room to learn more :D

    Thank you both very much. One of the sites I found from the google search answered my question in depth. While the second site from Motcon briefly explained my problem. That was deffinetly the answer I was looking for but to confused to ask the question :D. I guess I just needed: How to balance Shutter speed and FStop. Thanks both very much.

    I have read many photography books, but nothing will help as much as experimenting!
    I have done alot of that and that is how I learned most of what I know about shutter-speed, fstops, WB, etc.

    Have fun... EXPERIMENTING! :twisted: BWahhhaaaahhhhhh! (evil laugh)
