I'm not sure, but you can just use either aperture or shutter priority AE> Also what would my F stop be here?
mode and run the other up or down and find out. If you are in shutter
priority mode, then increase shutter speed until you get the f-stop you
desire. If you go aperture priority, just set the aperture you desire, and
if there is enough range, the shutter speed will match.

exposure. There is no drawback to any set or range of exposure combinations.
Just the effects of high vs low aperture and high vs low shutter speed.
