Roll the exposure mode dial to the "S" for "Shutter Priority" or to the "M" for "Manual." "Shutter Priority" allows the user to set the shutter speed, but the camera selects the best F-stop for good exposure. "Manual" allows the user to set both the shutter speed and the F-stop.
Use the command dial on the Nikon camera to scroll through the available shutter speeds to the level that you want. The Nikon D3000 adjusts from 30 seconds to 1/4000 of a second, and both settings allow you to choose from the entire latitude.
