Default question about 1/1000 setting

Hi,
Got home tonight & played around with the settings you suggested. Much better shots. Can you tell me what you set 1/1000. I'm new to this so I'm not sure what feature this relates to, is it regarding the flash?

Thank you for sharing!

- The shoot is ok, but try to find maybe subjects(flowers) that "speaks" more than this one..It will improve your photos..
- did you used A - program?
- also, what was the settings regarding white_balance?..do you use expodisc?

You would change that with the camera set to S mode or M mode. The 1/1000th refers to the shutter speed which means the cameras sensor will be exposed to light for 1/1000th of a second. If you are new to using cameras I would choose S-mode and adjust the shutter speed that way. In S-mode the camera will choose an appropriate aperture for you. Also, if you are taking indoor action shots with the flash, 1/1000th may be too fast of a shutter speed. I would try that to start and then move down from there. (Keep in mind 1/1600 and 1/2000 are faster than 1/1000th) You can move down and see what it looks like. Hope that helps!

So I've been waiting for about two weeks and the wait is finally over. It seems to have taken forever but the other afternoon i got clear sky and a half moon. Didn't have tripod with me, and skies had clouded over by the time I got home, - but I did manage to get this one handheld and I am well pleased with it. (I haven't touched it with any manipulation progs as I don't know how, but I'm keen on learning now). Maybe I should have resized it smaller but I don't know how, so if it's too big I would appreciate someone shrinking it a bit.
