Do i put the F stop higher? or ISO? any help is great. thanks.
go for a higher ISO. the ISO is one of the things that determines how much light gets into the picture. If you're shooting at a high shutter speed, like 1/2500 and it's a bright and sunny day outside, you might want to try your ISO at 800. If the pic comes out too bright, bump it down to the next lowest setting (on my camera that would be 400, but every camera is different). the aperture is also a factor but it's more for the depth of field and how much detail you want in the shot. if you want to have a shot that shows all the little drops of water splashing about, then your aperture would have to be at a higher number (like f/8 or f/9). and since it would be at a higher number your ISO would need to be higher to make up for that because a high aperture means that the diameter of the lens is smaller which lets in less light.
