Today we braved the cold and ventured to Kenmore Air to practice Shutter Speed.  All photos in this post were taken today by students.

SHUTTER SPEED:  Controls how long your shutter stays open for, and so also controls how much light reaches the sensor.

Leaving your shutter open a long time, smaller number, will let in lots of light and will capture motion as it moves – meaning you will see it as a blur.  Anything under 1/60 requires a tripod.

A short shutter speed, a faster number like a quick blink, freezes a moment in time without blur. You would use this if you want to freeze a fast-moving bird, animal, or car in your photo. A shutter speed of anything faster than 1/500th of a second is considered ideal for freezing an object, but this may vary depending on the speed of the subject.
