### Transcript

• 1. WHAT IS SHUTTER SPEED? The amount of time the shutter is open Shutter Speeds are measured in seconds or fractions of seconds 1/1000 of a second is much faster than 1/60 of a second (the bigger the denominator the faster the shutter speed) Most of your shots will be taken at speeds of 1/60 or greater Shots taken with speeds below 1/60 will require a tripod to avoid camera shake which can make the pictures blurry.Shutter Speeds will usually double in size 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, etc., on your camera’s settings.
• 2. BULB Some cameras give you the option of VERY SLOW Shutter Speeds measured in seconds instead of fractions of seconds Used for very low-light conditions Used for special-effects shots Used for when you are trying to capture a lot of movement in a shotThis can be accomplished by using BULB or the “B” Mode in your camera Bulb mode lets you keep your shutter open for as long as you hold it down
• 3. IS ANYTHING IN YOUR PHOTO “MOVING” Would you like to freeze the movement? http://www.flickr.com/photos/konaboy/72845202/ picture taken by Ben aka konaboy Taken with a high-speed lens (high shutter speed) to give the effect of freezing the motion of the surfer AND every drop of water! Would you like to blur the object giving it a sense of movement? http://www.flickr.com/photos/flamed/127166990/ picture taken by flamed aka Ephraim Miller Taken with a low shutter speed (remember you need a tripod for slow shutter speeds due to camera “shake” (blur)
