    I'm trying to photograph fish in a tank but they always come out slightly blurred because I can't use a fast shutter speed. The aperture is set at 3.5 and ISO at 400 but because of the lack of lighting the fastest shutter speed I can use is about 1/80 of a second. I've seen some really sharp photos in magazines, taken by amateur photographers, and I'd love to know how they do it.
