obviously it'll depend on the light at the moment of shooting. 2 seconds should be bight, right? Otherwise you'll literaly burn the image no matter (nearly) what aperture you choose.

yeah..as sergi said, the seconds would depend on the amount of light u have that moment...
2 seconds seems a bit long...is it a night shot or day shot?
i'd think 2seconds would be fitting for darker surrounding shots using low light....

when i said "2 seconds should be bight, right?" i ment NIGHT. Of course seconds/aperture combo is what matters but 2 seconds at 7.6 looks like a night shot. Or there you have the reason for a burnt shot at day light.

doesnt your camera come with a light measurer? weird enough. I always let the camera choose the light, dont invent it yourself unless you know what you're doin.

For instance your camera says 125/5.6 and you want more depth of field, then you'd change to 30/9 and it should give you approx. the same light. Normally cameras come with aperture or speed programas, that let you choose either and then the camera readjustes the combo.

I was trying to get a different style than what it normally takes, that's why it has the manual mode i'm guessing. Auto is fine for most things, but if i want to spice it up a bit, changing the settings has to be done.

a little of theory on 'steps' of light wont hurt then. It's fairly easy but you have to learn about it. Again, if your camera accepts speed and/or aperture programs you can start learning by trial and error.
