Hello everybody,

I just received my first DLSR, D40, 2 days back. And yesterday i was playing around with it.. I wanted to take a picture of a flower (indoor, low light). Now i set the camera to Aperture priority and set it to an F stop of 4. Now i went a bit close and held my shutter button half way, i heard a click (believe its the auto focus locking), but when i push my shutter release button all the way down, there is no response!!!! Absolutely nothing... I clicked the '?' button for help and it said Low light. Flash recommended. But i did not want to turn the flash on and spoil the shot.

So now my question... In the above case can't i take a picture without flash in low light?? How do i go around this? I dont want to use flash!! Am i doing something wrong here??

Please advise this beginner!!
Thanks
