Shutter speed is where the other side of themagic happens it is responsible for creating dramatic effects by</p><p>either freezing action or blurring motion. In this article, I will try toexplain everything I know about shutter speed in very simple</p><p>language.</p><p>1) What is a Camera Shutter?</p><p>Simply put, a camera shutter is a curtain in front of the camera sensor that stays closed until the camera fires.When the camera fires, the shutter opens and fully exposes the camera sensor to the light that passes through</p><p>the lens aperture. After the sensor is done collecting the light, the shutter closes immediately, stopping the light</p><p>from hitting the sensor. The button that fires the camera is also called shutter or shutter button, because it</p><p>triggers the shutter to open and close.</p><p>2) What is Shutter Speed?</p><p>Shutter speed, also known as exposure time, stands for the length of time a camera shutter is open to exposelight into the camera sensor. If the shutter speed is fast, it can help to freeze action completely, as seen in the</p><p>above photo of the dolphin. If the shutter speed is slow, it can create an effect called motion blur, where</p><p>moving objects appear blurred along the direction of the motion. This effect is used quite a bit in</p><p>advertisements of cars and motorbikes, where a sense of speedand motion is communicated to the viewer by intentionally</p><p>blurring the moving wheels.</p></li><li><p>7/31/2019 SHK Photography Tutorials Book</p><p> 6/105</p><p>Photography Tutorial Book By Sheikh Haroon Kamran</p><p>Waterfall - 5 Second Exposure (Shutter Speed)</p><p>Motion can also be frozen to an extent with a camera flash, even at low shutter speeds. Take a look at this</p><p>example:</p><p>Caspian Tern - 1/250 of a second @ ISO 800</p></li><li><p>7/31/2019 SHK Photography Tutorials Book</p><p> 7/105</p><p>Photography Tutorial Book By Sheikh Haroon Kamran</p><p>It was getting dark and even after increasing the sensor sensitivity to ISO 800, the camera still needed at least</p><p>1/250th of a second to properly expose this bird. If I had shot the bird at that speed, the bird would have turnedout to be blurry, since it moved faster than 1/250th of a second. I used an external flash and fired the camera at</p><p>1/250th of a second and as you can see, it helped me to freeze motion, despite having a low shutter speed for a</p><p>bird in flight.</p><p>All of the above is achieved by simply controlling the shutter speed. In summary, high shutter speeds freeze</p><p>action, while low shutter speeds create an effect of motion.</p><p>3) How shutter speed is measured</p><p>Shutter speeds are typically measured in fractions of a second, when they are under a second. For example 1/4means a quarter of a second, while 1/250 means one two-hundred-and-fiftieth of a second or four milliseconds.</p><p>Most modern DSLRs can handle shutter speeds of up to 1/4000th of a second, while some can handle much</p><p>higher speeds of 1/8000th of a second and faster. The longest shutter speed on most DSLRs is typically 30</p><p>seconds (without using external remote triggers).</p><p>4) Fast, slow and long shutter speeds</p><p>Fast shutter speed is typically whatever it takes to freeze action. For me, it is typically above 1/500th of a</p><p>second for general photography and above 1/1000th of a second for bird photography.</p><p>Slow shutter speed is considered to be the slowest shutter speed that you can handle without introducing</p><p>camera shake. Some of the newer Nikon lenses such as the Nikon 70-200mm VR II have special vibration</p><p>reduction technologies within the lens that can handle shutter speeds of up to 1/10th of a second (depending</p><p>on photographers technique), hand-held!</p><p>How about long shutter speed? Long shutter speeds are typically above 1 second, when you have to use a</p><p>tripod to get acceptably sharp images (for low-light/night photography or to capture movement).</p><p>5) How to set shutter speed</p><p>Most cameras handle shutter speeds automatically through in-camera metering. When the camera is set to</p><p>Auto mode, both shutter speed and aperture are automatically selected by the camera. When you shoot in</p><p>Aperture Priority mode, you set the lens aperture, while the camera automatically sets the shutter speed.</p><p>There are two ways to manually set the shutter speed:</p><p>a) By setting the camera to Shutter Priority mode, where you set the shutter speed and the camera</p><p>automatically selects the aperture.</p><p>b) By setting the camera to Manual mode, where you set both shutter speed and aperture manually.</p><p>I recommend letting the camera select the correct shutter speed for you. I personally shoot in Aperture</p><p>Priority mode 99% of the time and I let my camera calculate the shutter speed for me.</p><p>6) How to find shutter speed</p></li><li><p>7/31/2019 SHK Photography Tutorials Book</p><p> 8/105</p><p>Photography Tutorial Book By Sheikh Haroon Kamran</p><p>Do you know how to find out what your camera shutter speed is set to? It is typically very easy to find the</p><p>shutter speed. On Nikon DSLRs that have a top panel, the shutter speed is typically located on the top left</p><p>corner:</p><p>Nikon D90 Top Panel - Shutter Speed</p><p>If you look through the viewfinder, it should also be the number on the bottom left side of the screen. On most</p><p>DSLRs, you will not see the shutter speed as a fraction of a second it will typically be a regular number.When the shutter speed is slower than or equals to one second, you will see something like 1? or 5? (the sign</p><p>indicates a full second).</p><p>If you still cant find the shutter speed, set your camera to Aperture Priority mode, then look into the</p><p>viewfinder and point at a really dark area. Remember the numbers in the display, then switch to a very bright</p><p>area and see what number changes. The number that changes is your shutter speed.</p></li><li><p>7/31/2019 SHK Photography Tutorials Book</p><p> 9/105</p><p>Photography Tutorial Book By Sheikh Haroon Kamran</p><p>Pro Tip: Minimum Shutter Speed in Photography When Shooting</p><p>Handheld</p><p>Did you know that when shooting handheld there is a minimum shutter speed</p><p>in photography you must follow in order to have crisp looking photos? If youdidnt then dont feel bad because youre not alone. Most new photographers</p><p>dont know this either and only learn it by sheer luck!</p><p>You may have noticed that when you take some photos handheld that they end</p><p>up coming out blurry or not very sharp. Many times the photo looks crisp on</p><p>your preview monitor but when you sit down to review your photos you seethat theyre not sharp. You scratch your head and think to yourself I know I</p><p>held the camera very still. Why are these blurry!</p><p>What youre not aware of is that most photos shot handheld will come out blurry if you dont choose the rightshutter speed for your photograph because of a factor called camera shake. Camera shake occurs from the</p><p>small natural movements of your hands. No matter how steady you think your hands are when shooting</p><p>handheld they still move slightly and can end up causing motion blur. Thats because the shutter speed youchose is not fast enough to compensate for this slight movement. There is a minimum shutter speed you must</p><p>follow when shooting handheld.</p><p>So what is the Minimum Shutter Speed in Photography?</p><p>Depending on what the focal length of your lens is set at will determine what the minimum shutter speed inphotography should be. A good rule of thumb is to choose a shutter speed that is one over your focal</p><p>length.</p><p>Confused? Heres an example to help you understand how to choose the minimum correct shutter speed for</p><p>your photography:</p><p>Lets say you are using a telephoto lens at it is set at 300mm. How do you know its set at 300mm? Just look at</p><p>the number its turned to on the barrel of your lens. By using the rule above youll need to choose a shutter</p><p>speed of at least 1/300. This equals one over the focal length. If your lens was set at 90mm you would choose a</p><p>shutter speed of at least 1/90. Make sense?</p><p>You probably noticed in the above paragraph that we said choose a shutter speed ofat least Thats</p><p>because this is the bare minimum shutter speed you can use for a sharp shot when shooting handheld one</p><p>over the focal length. Often you need to choose a speed setting that is one or two faster. How do you know</p><p>exactly which one to choose? It takes practice and depends on how shaky your hands are!</p><p>If you need to use a slower shutter speed to achieve a good exposure then youll need to use a tripod. A tripod</p><p>will allow you to use slower shutter speeds as they prevent the occurrence of camera shake.</p><p>Now that you know how to choose the minimum speed for your shutter when taking photos you might be</p><p>wondering how to achieve different effects with shutter speed.

Have you ever taken aphoto and later discovered that the subject within the frame had unintended motion blur or you froze</p><p>the action of something you really want to create a blur?</p><p>In this article were going to teach youhow to choose the right shutter speed</p><p>in order to capture the righttype of action within your photograph.</p><p>A Quick Definition of Shutter Speed</p><p>Shutter speed, also known as exposure time, stands for the length of time a camera shutter is open to exposelight into the camera sensor.
