Shutter Speed Priority:
Inside the camera there is a mechanism (a shutter) which controls how long light is allowed to act on the film. When you take a photograph (by pushing the shutter-release), the shutter opens and then closes a fraction of a second later. How quickly this is done is called the shutter speed and is measured in seconds
Shutter priority with longer exposures is chosen to create an impression of motion. For example, a waterfall will appear blurred and fuzzy. If the camera is panned with a moving subject, the background will appear blurred. When photographing sports or high-speed phenomena, shutter priority with short exposures can ensure that the motion is effectively frozen in the resulting image.
- Faster Shutter Speed = Freeze Action (less light)
- Slower Shutter Speed = Blur Action (more light)
No matter how difficult things can be out there, coming home to our loved ones is the best place on earth.
A Correct Exposure is a simple combination of three important factors: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. These 3 factors are the heart of every exposure and they form the photographic triangle. Knowing these 3 factors will help you became creative at composing amazing photos!
- Aperture: the size of the opening of the lens when a picture is taken
- Shutter Speed: The amount of time that the shutter is open
- ISO: The measure of a digital camera sensor’s sensitivity to light
A great reference book that I highly recommend for any new photographer out there is: Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson.
