Hello and welcome to our community! Is this your first visit?
Thanks for that pointer - looking at the taster pages on Amazon, the first chapters in particular certainly seem to be aimed at the rank beginner like me. In the meantime I'll change the aperture and ISO back to their original settings.
Put ISO back but play around with the aperture and see how adjusting this changes the shutter speed.

Small aperture (large f-number) makes more stuff in focus (both foreground and background in focus at once) but will give a lower shutter speed for a given amount of light.
Do bear in mind, I'm no expert. I'm just bored on my lunch break and this gives me something to do.
