    I am seeking help on a exposure question. I took stills at the last reception gallery event last weekend, unfortunately though I had a very slow lens available to me that evening and so some of the images came out slightly dark.

    My question is, what am I ought to do in order to expose image properly, meaning expose for the subject and not the background? Now if I had a f1.4 lens, would that fix the problem?

    If I increase the exposure it brings up the highlights and not the shadows.

    Also, would a tripod be a necessary item to have for this kind of shoot?

    Any advice would be highly appreciated.
