Shoot with shutter priority to assist in creating an interesting composition while capturing movement.
In week seven, we'll continue with another technical challenge. Like aperture, being conscious of your shutter speed can help assist you in a variety of ways. Whether it be getting a crisp shot of a hummingbird in flight, or creating energy by showing movement in an image, shutter speed is another tool that can drastically affect the mood of an image.
What is SHUTTER SPEED?
To put it simply, shutter speed is how quickly (or slow) your shutter opens and closes. Shutter speed makes up 1/3 of the exposure triangle we talked about last week with aperture and ISO taking up the other 2 sides. In photography, every action is give and take. In the video above, I demonstrate how the exposure triangle works and how every action is countered with a different reaction in regards to getting the correct exposure.
Understanding the exposure triangle and understanding when to shoot with aperture priority, shutter priority, or even manual, will give you complete control and help you in getting your shots to turn out exactly how you envision them. For a better explanation on shooting with shutter priority and how the exposure triangle works, see the video above.
For this week's assignment, try shooting with shutter priority to capture movement then share what your settings were and why. This will be a tool that we'll be revisiting for the rest of the year.
