www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 6SHUTTER SPEED GUIDEDownload the Free Shutter Speed Chart PDF , for reference, while reading the in-depthphotography guide, below.Shutter speed photography settings, combined with ISO , and f-stop (controls aperture) ,give the photographer ultimate creative control over the photograph & the exposuretriangle .Shutter speed photography settings control two important factors within an image:1. Motion Blur: Example, smooth water produced by long shutter speeds or fastmoving objects frozen with sharp focus, produced by short shutter speeds.2. Image Brightness: Length of time light is exposed to the camera sensor , whichdetermines the overall exposure.Below, you'll learn how shutter speed works & the best shutter speed settings to producethe correct exposure for any shooting situation.Shutter Speed Chart & Exposure TimeBasicsTo create an image, light passes through the lens aperture where it's exposed to thecamera sensor , also known as the image sensor.The camera sensor collects & records light information about the scene beingphotographed. This information is stored on a memory card as a digital picture file.The shutter speed determines the length of time the camera sensor is exposed light fromthe scene, in turn affecting how much light information the sensor collects.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 7What is a Camera Shutter?Think of a camera shutter as a door, inside the camera body, that covers the camerasensor. When the shutter (door) is closed, the sensor does not collect light informationabout the scene being photographed. When the shutter (door) is open the sensor starts collecting light informationabout the scene being photographed.When you press the "shutter button" to take an image, the shutter opens and the sensoris exposed to light for the amount of time denoted by the shutter speed setting.Technical Note: DSLR cameras have a physical shutter. Mirrorless cameras do not.Other than this fact shutter speed works in the same manner for both.Shutter Speed Vs. Exposure TimeShutter speed controls the exposure time. For example, a shutter speed of 2 seconds,exposes the image sensor to light for 2 seconds. This is known as a 2 second exposuretime.The photographer selects the shutter speed, which controls the exposure time, duringwhich the sensor is exposed to light.Once this exposure time has elapsed, the shutter closes and the sensor is no longerexposed to light, thus stops capturing information about the scene.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 8What is Motion Blur in Photography?If different elements in a composition move over the exposure time, such as water, treeleaves, animals or stars, each pixel will show an average of the color and light intensitycollected by that pixel.Using different shutter speeds allows the photographer to add interesting detail showingdynamic movement in a still frame picture.The following images are used to isolate the effects of motion blur making them easilyapparent.Actual landscape images & examples provided in the next section.1/1000 s. Shutter Speed, No Motion BlurSTART HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 91 s. Shutter Speed, Motion BlurThe image photographed at 1/1000 second shutter speed, shows no motion blur. Thewater looks as it would to your eye.The image photographed at 1 second shutter speed, shows slight motion blur. The wateris much smoother with less detail.Each pixel shows the average of the color and light it collects over the given shutterspeed.Motion blur is a function of shutter speed, focal length, and speed of the object movingthrough the composition.Experimentation is key to learning about motion blur. In the following sections, we willdiscuss this topic in detail.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 10Exposure Stops & Shutter SpeedAn exposure stop, or stop for short, provides a universal scale to measure the increaseand decrease in light, exposed to the image sensor, due to changes in shutter speed &f-stop.For ISO, exposure stops provide the increase or decrease in signal (light information)amplification, thus how much light is required to produce the optimal exposure.Overall, stops provide an easy way for the photographer to increase or decrease imagebrightness or adjust specific f-stop, ISO, and shutter speed settings while balancing theexposure triangle.To make things clear the following examples discuss stops for shutterspeed, while assuming f-stop & ISO settings stay constant.Upon understanding the concept, read the Photography Exposure Triangle Guide andlearn to adjust all settings simultaneously, using stops.Adjusting Shutter Speed Using StopsClick Here & download the Shutter Speed Chart PDF to reference while reading.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 11The Stops Column shows the difference in stops between varying shutter speeds.The Shutter Speed Column shows different standard shutter speeds in 1 stopintervals.Specific stops don't directly correlate to specific shutter speed values.Stops allow you to easily compare the amount of light captured by one shutter speedsetting compared to another.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 12This makes it easy to increase or decrease the image brightness & balance the exposuretriangle without guessing.Lengthening / increasing the shutter speed , thus producing a longer exposuretime, allows the image sensor to collect more light information, producing a brighterimage with increased motion blur. This is known as stopping up.Shortening / decreasing the shutter speed , thus producing a shorter exposuretime, forces the image sensor to collect less light information, producing a darker imagewith less motion blur. This is known as stopping down.TECHNICAL NOTE: Shutter speed is measured in seconds, therefore increasing the shutter speedincreases the exposure time. The opposite applies for a decrease in shutter speed.In reality and physics speed is provided in distance or units per second. The concept of shutter speed canbe confusing since it works in the opposite direction of how we usually think of “speed”.The shutter speed, provided in seconds, controlled through camera settings, is not a true speed. Knowingthe information from the camera input shutter speed the photographer could calculate the actual speed ofthe shutter, although this is not required.For example, a 1/1000 second “shutter speed” could theoretically take 1000 shots per second. 1000 shotsper second is a true shutter speed.For Shutter Speed, Exposure Stops Work as Follows: An increase of 1 stop doubles the amount of light exposed to the image sensor,creating a brighter exposure with more motion blur. A decrease of 1 stop decreases the amount of light by half, creating a darkerexposure with less motion blur.The following example images show 1 stop increases in shutter speed with no changes toISO or f-stop.As the images progress, stopping up in shutter speed, they become brighter withincreased motion blur.As motion blur & shutter speed increases the water becomes less and less detailed, withincreased smoothness.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 15To maintain constant image brightness, while increasing or decreasing shutter speed,changes in ISO or f-stop must be made by the same number of stops in the oppositedirection.For example, a stop up in shutter speed would require a stop down in ISO, f-stop, or acombination of both, to maintain the same image brightness.This is taught in the Exposure Triangle Photography Guide.Shooting Example - Using Stops & Shutter SpeedLet's say you took an image with a shutter speed of 4 seconds, f/8, ISO100, and noticedit was too bright.Remember, all other settings are currently arbitrary and remainconstant.You thought to yourself, "If only this image contained half the amount of light it wouldbe perfect.". Reference the example images below.1. You knew that a 1 stop decrease in shutter speed would reduce the light collectedby half, creating the photo you wanted.2. Instead of guessing at the best shutter speed, you referenced the chart & saw thata 1 stop decrease in shutter speed from 4 seconds was 2 seconds.3. You selected this new shutter speed in your camera and pressed the shutterbutton.4. Due to your knowledge of stops & shutter speeds, the new image exhibited exactlyhalf the light as the previous image.5. There was no need to guess at the ideal shutter speed or take test images! You'redone.Technical Note: Most cameras allow you to change your shutter speeds, ISO andf-stop values in intervals of 1/3, 1/2 or 1 stop. This is a user selected setting providingin camera. I prefer to use 1/3 stop intervals for precise control.START HERE LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY V IEW PHOTOS WORKSHOPS & TOURS

www.DaveMorrowPhotography.com Page 24Max Shutter Speed for Handheld PhotosAs stated above, objects which move across the composition produce motion blur. Thesame holds true if the camera moves due to hand "shake" while shooting.This hand movement can produce very slight motion blur which causes the image to beout of focus.For the sharpest images, a tripod is recommended.When a tripod can't be used this trick helps to approximate the required shutter speed.To approximate the maximum shutter speed required for handheld shooting, withoutmotion blur, take 1 and divide it by the effective focal length.This value will provide the longest shutter speed that will still produce sharp images.Max Handheld Exposure Time 1 / Effective Focal LengthFor example, a 50mm effective focal length would require a 1/50th-second shutter speedor faster.Anything longer than 1/50th-second shutter speed would yield a blurry image.This is an
