Just a stupid question on the flash. I got a NikonD80 and SB600. Just wondering why every time I turn on the flash, the shutter speed turns to 1/60s. I take mostly social events where it is usually indoors and dark and people move about quite a bit. I was hoping to use the flash to freeze their motions a little bit more/ to have a higher shutter speed.
I read somewhere that when photographing moving subjects (candid shots) it is best to use 1/250s or some high shutter speed like that. But in the dark it is impossible to get that kind of speed right? and if i use the flash, the thing only stops at 1/60s.
anyway to get round the problem? thanks in advance!
