    Hi Guys
    I am new to photography and started learning manual mode in my camera
    Posting few snaps took yesterday evening.

    I am getting confused on what the shutter speed and aperture needs to set with respect to the subject i am handling. I am exploring myself much on this.

    Always when i set my shutter speed more than 1/1000 (to capture the image crisp) the whole image gets darker (even setting the ISO to 1600)

    Please advise

    I have not seen the video above but coincidentally I had a go at the moon last night as well for the first time.

    My specs to get this shot.

    Tripod to stabilise camera, hand held at this focal length is almost impossible.

    Shutter speed : 1/160th
    ISO: 100
    Aperture: /f7.1
    Lens: Canon 300mm F4 L USM
    Kenko 1.4x Pro DGX Teleconverter
    Canon 500D
    Shot in RAW
    Live View on (doubles as mirror lock up?), focus preset manually.
    Remote shutter release, I did as much as I could to stablise the shot at every point of the process.

    Your specs from the first image.

    Camera Maker: Canon
    Camera Model: Canon PowerShot SX20 IS
    Image Date: 2010:06:23 18:56:09
    Focal Length: 100.0mm
    Digital Zoom: 2.500x
    Aperture: f/5.7
    Exposure Time: 0.100 s (1/10)
    ISO equiv: 200
    Exposure Bias: none
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure Mode: Manual
    White Balance: Manual
    Flash Fired: No
    Color Space: sRGB

    It doesnt look to me like the atmosphere was clear, it looks hazy, could be a trick of the very bright moon though.

    My advice to you would be watch that video ( as I said I have not watched it but this guy usually has some really good advice), shoot only when the air is haze/cloud free, after a good storm or rain would be best in theory, cleans the air and low pressure helps too I think.

    Stabilise that camera use self timer to make sure the camera is dead still when the shutter is released, shoot manually, larger aperture 5-8 perhaps.
    Keep the ISO as low as possible.
    Use the fastest shutter speed possible without increasing your ISO.
    Underexpose slighlty.
    Check that the camera is actually focussing correctly.

    Keep trying, best way to learn.

    It almost looks like when you have the A/C on and at a cold temp them go outside, like with glasses or a camera and everything instantly gets fogged up. But could be hazy.

    When you set your shutter speed beyond 1/1000, do you have the right aperture available? Maybe yo've gone beyond the largest aperture on your lens?
