Shutter Speed Exposed!

There are plenty of reasons to understand shutter speed better. It is an important controller of many aspects of the composition of our photographs. When things are moving fast we can fix them – capture the speed of the moment. And, when things are moving slowly the camera can make them look fast. And, when we are interpreting movement in our image we can inject a little blur and make it look like our image has movement just like the real world. Shutter speed is one of the three main aspects of exposure along with ISO and Aperture. Shutter speed is about our exposures.

Today we have published a new entry in our Photographic Glossary… Shutter Speed
