As the photographer…<br />You decide what the best aperture or shutter speed would be…<br />Depends on the subject and the light<br />Sometimes you can let your camera decide<br />Typically you don’t want shutter speed slower than _______. So if the shutter speed says it needs to be slow, you need to make your aperture bigger. This should speed up your shutter speed.<br />
If you are photographing something specific…<br />You will have to determine what aperture/shutter speed would be best.<br />If you are shooting action, you want to freeze it or blur it. <br />Blurring action=slow shutter speed (more light coming in)<br />Would the aperture be big or small to balance for lots of light coming in?<br />Freezing action=fast shutter speed (less light coming in)<br />Big or small aperture to balance the small amount of light coming in?<br />
