Hi all, been trying to find an answer to this for a while and it's been driving me nuts. I often get very slow shutter speeds (like 1/10 sec or less) when shooting indoors under bright lighting (non flash). For example, I may have a person or object in front of a backdrop ... I have my aperture wide open (maybe 1.8 with my 50mm prime lens) and am throwing anywhere from 500 to 1000 watts of continuous light onto the subject, from 2 soft boxes or shop lights. Usually I'm shooting in a program mode at 100-200 ISO and am no more than 10 feet away from the subject, sometimes much less, and get VERY slow shutter speeds. Sometimes as slow as 1/4 sec! And strangley enough throwing more light at the subject does not help. At first I though it might be my camera (Nikon D80) so I tried it with my cheaper little Konica Minolta Z3. Same thing! Very slow shutter speed. What gives? Is the camera being fooled by something? How can I be using plenty of light but still have such a slow shutter speed?
