Photography course - Class No 3: Shutter speed and movement (Beginner level)

Class No 3: Shutter speed and movement (Beginner level) 3h30

How can movement be captured in photography? Or, on the other hand, how can you freeze the action of a scene?

 

Managing the exposure time – or the shutter speed – of the camera is the answer to these two questions and is, just like the depth of field, a key parameter in photography.

 

This parameter allows the light to hit the digital sensor for a defined amount of time, which will freeze or blur a movement.

 

In this case, you will have once again a wide array of creative possibilities: blur or freeze the action, get a filé (a moving subject is frozen in a blurry surrounding).

 

This workshop will teach you how to:

 

-    Use the “S” and “Tv” shooting modes

-    Make filés of moving subjects

-    Freeze the movement of a subject

-    Use blur to suggest movement and bring dynamism to your pictures
