A camera settings question--T2i.
Feb 7, 2013

There are many examples that I might pose to you, but let's use a common one, settings for silky smooth water.  I understand that you need to increase the exposure time to achieve this.  But when I do it, the lighter color of the white-ish water comes out way overexposed.  So what else needs to be set when the exposure (shutter speed) decreases?  Another situation is in trying to excentuate the sharpness of an entire wide angle landscape image?  Or stopping action of an indoor stage production?

The overall result for indoor shooting needs to include:

1) images is sufficently well lit

2) motion freezes for a sharp image

3) reduce noise as best as one can

Thanks for your advice/pointers/suggestions/solutions.
