Photography Assignment #3 –  Fast Shutter Speed.

Something to remember about shutter speed:

fast shutter speed freeze motion while a slow shutter speed shows motion.

If you’re using Canon turn your dial to TV – shutter priority and if you’re using a Nikon turn your dial to S both will do the same thing. They put you in charge of the shutter speed and the camera with adjust the aperture and ISO.

I would at least go 1/250sec and faster on your shutter speed to freeze motion. It depends on a couple factors – how fast your motion is, what lenses you’re using. Try shooting in short bursts when the action is at its peak that way you have more of a chance capturing the exact moment you’re looking for.

Luckily my daughter is always up for jumping for the camera!
