On the D7000 I am a little confused on how to manually set the speed and aperture and have a correct exposure. Maybe this is not possible.

I know on S - I select the speed - camera selects F stop.
I know on A - I select the f stop - camera selects the speed.

If I use M so I can select both the speed and F stop then I have no control over exposure, is this correct? As an example to get a sharp photo if I want to shoot a bird using a 300mm lens and I want to use a fast speed such as 1000 and I want to select an aperture such as F8 then how do I get a correct exposure?

I ask because I see recommendations that advise you to use a certain speed and aperture for the sharpest photo.
