Question by idk idc: darkness caused by shutter speed?
I made the shutter speed 1/2000 (the best cuz i have bad case of “palsy”) and i took a picture and it got really dark when i took the picture! so can i still have fast shutter speed and still not make my picture so dark (my camera is a Canon PowerShot A540)?

Your picture is too dark because your shutter speed was so fast, not enough light was able to get to the camera’s sensor.
Were you shooting indoors? I would suggest that a shutter speed of 1/125 or 1/160 would be fast enough to stop any camera shake. If you were using a flash when you took a picture at 1/2000, there is a good chance the flash wasn’t able to properly light the subject.
My suggestion? Slow your shutter speed down, unless you’re shooting a fast moving subject outside in bright light. Or, you could use your camera’s automatic settings.
