Re: Need help for shutter speed & aperture

It actually sounds like you already have a basic understanding of the relationship of the three.  You are correctly using aperture to increase the depth of field and know that it's going to cause shutter speed to drop if you keep the iso the same.

It's all about what compromises you are willing to make.  In general though, I would let the iso increase to where you need it.  A grainy picture is almost always going to be a better outcome that one that's blurry due to motion blur or under exposed (which will get grainy if you try to fix it in post processing.
