Briefly...

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.

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

Key Details

- This beginner class is part of a pack of 4 workshops (14 hours)
- A summary of the notions covered in this course will be handed out at the end of each session. A “meeting form” with the exact meet-up location will be sent to enrolled participants a few days before class
- Number of hours for this course - 3.30 hours. Depending on the number of students, the course can be completed in 2.30 hours, 3 hours or 3.30 hours. With a very small number of participants, the quality of the class and the time allocated to each one to ask questions allows the course duration to be reduced in order to keep the chosen dates and avoid cancellations. For more information, see our Terms of use page
- The workshop is composed of a theoretical part, practical training and a debriefing.
