    Theory : u need enough light to take good exposure photos, light is controlled by:
    1. ISO (bigger number = more light)
    2. Aperture (smaller number = more light)
    3. Shutter (bigger number = more light)

    Practical : on a bright sunny day, go outside and shoot at these settings:
    ISO 100
    Aperture f16
    Shutter 1/125
    No flash

    1. U should get a good exposure photo.
    2. Then at the same location, if u want a faster shutter, u set the shutter to 1/250 (1 stop faster), keep the same ISO (100) and same aperture (f16), u would get a darker photo.
    3. Then at the same location, u set the shutter to 1/250, change the aperture to f11 (1 stop bigger), keep the same ISO (100), u should still get a good exposure photo.

    so at the same ISO
    if you want to +1 from shutter speed
    you need to
    -1 from aperture

    and vice versa

    His fraction better be good

    1/ 60 and 1/100 .....redstone ...apply your fraction tho 100 is a bigger number

    1. use a flash
    2. use panning
    3. shoot outdoors with sunlight
    4. use even higher iso and wider apertures, e.g. shooting at iso 3200 with a 50/1.4 lens wide open.

    if u use flash, why do you need to use 1/500 to freeze movement. And what type of movements are you looking at? Also, if you use flash, why use ISO400?

    =)

    Take up basic photography. Its good to learn the basics.

    bigger iso = more light? i thought the bigger the iso number, less light is needed?

    Go for a course. Not everything can be explained to you. You need to understand the basics first. Shoot more and do a lot of trial and error then you can understand better.

    A lot of "basic" basics had already been very simply explained here. Going for a course doesn't guarantee a simpler answer (I tried). But shooting with the knowledge of the stuff that's been said will help tremendously. Get your hands on instead of sitting behind the screen trying to figure the logics out. Try full manual if possible with your cam.

    You can continue to use those fast shutter speeds. Ignore those dark portions and expose for those important parts only. Point the camera toward a light source or use backlighting. faster film and"pshing" also helps.

    Expose only for the important parts of the picture
