Recently I've been getting into portrait photography. I have the eye for it and the basics of the D40 down. There's something that always has me stumped, aperture and shutter speed. I understand that the lower the aperture, the more light let in. It never seems to work out when I try to adjust aperture on my camera.

How do I adjust aperture AND the shutter speed so I get decent pictures? It seems as if everytime I adjust any controls on my camera it doesn't work out. (example: I'll lower my aperture, get a decent amount of light in, but the shutter speed is off so it's blurry)

I would appreciate any help.

(and you may say 'read the manual' which I've heard many times before; I have read the manual but I'm the hands on type of learner. So I think if I have easier directions from someone else on here, I might be able to understand it better.)
