Question by Carly C: ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed?
just got my camera about last week (its a Nikon D5000) and I’m having trouble with ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed. I know how to change all three of them but I’m confused on which ones do what or look best together. I want to be a photographer so I need to get this down pat. If you have any picture examples or links that would be awesome…Thanks again!

Ever thought of looking into your printed D5000 User’s Manual ? It gives precisely the info you need. As for your aspiration to be a photographer, there are zillions of web links to get you started at any level. Feel free to google it out – Some prefer some websites as a matter of personal preference – not that I don’t want to refer any to you.
To precisely let you know, ISO is higher for low light so set it accordingly, Aperture is set F value lowest value captures most light (biggest aperture allowed by lens) and vice versa. Shutter speed gives you ability to freeze your subject by setting fastest speed or lets you capture your subject in very low light situations by setting slowest shutter speed (counted in seconds).
Experimentation is key – it will teach you more than a website/manual. Also try learning what is manual focus – there is magic in there – look into it
