Went out today to try my hand at panning for the first time, and ran into a bit of problem that has nothing to do with Panning.


Equipment: D5000 w Kit lens (18-55mm VR)

ISO - 100 (Lo)
WB - Auto
Focus - Single Point / AF-S
Condition - Overcast

Try 1: Mode - Shutter speed

First chose 1/8 shutter speed. But the camera complained it was too bright. Tried taking a picture and was completely blown out.

Try 2: Mode - Manual

- Closed the aperture down as much as possible
- Still couldn't set shutter speed even as slow as 1/15
- After switching to 1/30 was able to take the picture, but still a bit overexposed

Question:
After choosing lowest possible ISO and smallest aperture, what other options do I have to be able to set the shutter speed a bit slower?
