Shutter Speed by Pant

- shutter speed is the amount of time that the shutter is open.
- Shutter speed is responsible for two particular things changing the brightness of your photo, and creating dramatic effects by either freezing action or blurring motion.
- Shutter speeds are typically measured in fractions of a second, when they are under a second. For example 1/4 means a quarter of a second, while 1/250 means one two-hundred-and-fiftieth of a second.
- The other important effect of shutter speed is on exposure, which relates to the brightness of an image.
- If you use a long shutter speed, your camera sensor gathers a lot of light, and the resulting photo will be quite bright. By using a quick shutter speed, your camera sensor is only exposed to a small fraction of light, resulting in a darker photo.
- A fast shutter speed is typically whatever it takes to freeze action. If you are photographing birds, that may be 1/1000th second or faster.
- The most common reason to use a shutter speeds slower than 1/60 sec is a lack of available light, where you need it to achieve a correctly exposed image.
- 8.In automatic mode,your camera will try to guess the best shutter speed to capture your scene. Unfortunately it doesn't always get it right and your photo can end up poorly exposed or blurred.
9.Many photographers consider around 1/60th of a second as a standard shutter speed. However in truth there is no such thing as standard, as it's always going to depend on what subject you are shooting.
10.Professional video cameras often allow selecting shutter speed in terms of shutter angle instead of time units, especially those that are capable of over cracking or undercranking.
