By definition, the shutter speed is the time frame when the shutter on your camera. In a more easy, shutter speed means a time where our sensors ' see ' a subject which we will photograph. Simply put, shutter speed is the time between pressing the shutter button on our cameras to this key back to its original position.
So easy, we translate this concept in some usage in camera:
- Setting shutter speed of 500 in the camera means that a span of as much as 1/500 (seperlimaratus) seconds. Yes, the shortest and sekilat it. While for a time exposure by as much as 30 seconds, you will see writing like this: 30 ''
- Setting shutter speed on your camera are usually in multiples of 2, so we'll see rows like this: 1/500, 1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30 ff. Now almost all of the cameras allowed settings 1/3 stop, so more or less movement of the shutter speed the closer; 1/500, 1/400, 1/320, 1/250, 1/200, 1/160 ... etc.
- To produce sharp photos, use a shutter speed that is safe. The safe rules in most conditions is setting shutter speed 1/60 or sooner, so that the resulting photo be sharp and safe from results photos shaded (blur/focus). We can outsmart this secure boundaries with a tripod or use features Image Stabilization (discussed in an upcoming post)
- Shutter speed limit which is secure: shutter speed we should be greater than the length of the lens. So if we wear lens 50 mm, use minimal shutter 1/60 of a second. If we wear the lens 17 mm, use a shutter speed of 1/30 sec.
- Shutter speed to freeze motion. Use a shutter speed as high as possible can be achieved for the freeze movement. The faster an object moves that we want to freeze it in the photo, the faster shutter speed is needed. To freeze the movement of birds that fly for example, use Shutter Priority mode and set the shutter speed at 1/1000 seconds (ideally ISO is set to auto option) so that the results are sharp. If you notice, the sports photographer idolizes mode S/this Tv.
- The intentional blur – shutter speed to show the effect of movement. When photographing moving objects, we can deliberately delayed shutter speed us to show the effect of the movement. Make sure you include at least one stationary object as the anchor of the photo. Try to look at the photos below:
