Here are some examples of silhoettes each exposed differently. This selection is from my own 35mm still photography. I used a
Minolta XD11 w/ Minolta lenses. I shot with 400 asa Kodak film and exposed each shot differently.

If you scroll thru your fps setting, it should eventually switch into Shutter Speeds. At which point you can select whichever shutter speed you choose.

Thanks.
Yeah just keep bumping the fps on the light meter and it should get into shutter speeds.
