Hi folks,

I recently bought my D50, after upgrading from a P+S. I absolutely love the camera, but am aware that I am still only learning to use it properly!! I am writing to get some advise from everyone about how I can improve my skills.

I try to shoot in Aperture priority most of the time. I have an SB600 for indorrs shooting, which I always try to bounce.

The question is... I always tend to shoot at aperture settings between 3 and 8. This gives me nice portrait pictures, with nice blurred backgrounds. When I increase the apeture settings, I get more of the shot in focus, but I tend to get darker photos. Is this right?

Can anyone shed any light (pardon the pun) on how I might be able to remedy this 'dark' situation.... or maybe I should just stick to aperture settings between 3-8!!

Thanks,
DH.
