Ok, so I am by no means pretending to be a top notch photographer like the majority of people on this forum, but I am looking for a little advice if someone is willing to give it. I have been taking photographs for many years just for fun and recently after many people inquiring into how much I would charge for their photographs I decided to pursue a business. I have taken a few classes trying to improve my skills but there is something that is simply bugging me. I have a Nikon D3200 and I try my best to get the Aperture and Shutter speed right for indoor photographs without flash, but I seem to be having a terrible time. They come out blurry or underexposed and I was just curious if maybe someone could offer a little bit of friendly insight into what I may be doing wrong. Thank you.

Select two of the three things that impact exposure and let the camera run the third thing.  ie, you control aperture and shutter while letting the camera chose ISO.  Why is the picture blurry?  You are moving the camera with a non IS lens, everything too dark for the camera to find the focus, or is the shutter too slow to stop people who are moving around?  You have to analyze what is wrong with each missed shot rather than just deleting them.

I think everyone can happen upon a great shot by chance (my method) but a pro uses his or her skills to make a great shot happen.
