This was taken at ISO 200, f/2.2, 1/15s - Metering was correct, but it seems I should have brought the ISO to 800 to get the speed to 1/60s? Is there anything else that I could have done for a better action shot? I'm trying to keep my ISO low, but indoors (during full daylight) I run into this problem! I was standing pretty far away (50mm prime f/1.8 at f/2.2 from) and there's definitely a speed issue - I don't think DoF is the problem here. Without investing in softboxes (which don't make much sense for semi-spontaneous shots) how can I get speeds of 1/125 or faster indoors? Additionally, I understand that indoors is typically around LV7 (I don't have a meter). At ISO 200 and f/2.2 that should give me 7 stops for speed, which is 1/125. Why is my metering giving me 1/15? Is my house too dark? We have lots of windows and it was about 3 pm on a sunny day! Is the dark carpet causing metering problems for my camera?
