Shutter speed

Stutter speed is how quick the camera sensor is exposed to the light. The smaller the aperture is exposed, the more motion blur will appear in the photo. Generally this is in fraction of seconds but it can be hours depending on the effect you are trying to achieve.

1/1000 1/500 1/250 1/125 1/60 1/30 1/10 1/4

Efffect of shutter speed

Between 1/1000 to 1/250 is freeze action. When you capture the image in movement; the image will be solid with no blurring.

Between 1/30 to 8, you’ll get motion blur. When you can see the movement of the main focus. A tripod is needed as you need to expose the camera sensor for a while and it could pick up your hand movement.

For bulb setting, You will need a remote control or intervatometer. the stutter speed will be 30 seconds or longer. You’ll need to doit; press it, lock it then stop it (Once you’re done)

For our images, I was the one who had to be moving so I walked. The photos aren’t that focused until we got to the motion blur and it worked beautiful, even if only one of my legs remained in focus.

The photos where taken by Adam, while I was the subject (Again). I walked throughout the photos because asthma and cold weather don’t mix. The ones that are blurred are the ones which works while with the others is because I wasn’t walking quick enough.
