been trying taking shots round the coast with my canon eos 550 d. shooting in manual as i slow shutter speed down i loss brightness although my iso is on automatic. then i speed up shutter speed and light adjustment gets better. any ideas how i can keep shutter speed slow and keep my light ok at same time ?? thanks mondo.

A slow shutter speed can increase the ISO which can make an image noisy/dimmer so take it off manual and set it to 100/200/400 max.. Take some test shots to see which ISO setting works best. You may have to use an ND filter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ND_filter) to get the balance right.

And don't forget. Post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with your camera. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/) to get you started. The most useful is the Adjusting levels (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/06_Levels/06_Levels.html) and for even more adjustment. The Curves tool (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/07_Curves/07_Curves.html) is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet or whatever :cool:

Cheers!

Have a look at Part 2 of this tutorial Clicky (http://web.canon.jp/imaging/enjoydslr/part2/2A.html) which should help a bit.

Cheers!
