2. Shutter Speeds

 The shutter speed is also known as how fast the camera is opening and closing to take the desired photograph. The faster the shutter speed is the more photos it will take at one time. This can mostly be done by holding down the main function button (the button to take the photo). If you are desiring a slower shutter speed you would most often select it to suggest movement in a still photograph of a moving subject (ex: waterfall). If you are desiring a faster shutter speed you would most often select it to suggest a moving subject to appear unnaturally frozen (ex: basketball player jumping in the air to take a shot). This will all depend on what you as the photographer wants to capture to your audience, or which type of audience you are trying to portray. Depending on which ISO (sensitivity to light), Aperture (F-Stop), and shutter speed (time) the photographer uses will make or break the image; there is only so much one can fix in photoshop! It’s all about taking the photo not editing it! Remember that! 🙂
