Photography for Beginners – Shutter Speed Explained – DIY in 5 Ep 31

Shutter speed, also known as exposure time, is the speed at which the camera’s door opens and closes. This is the total time that light is exposed to the camera’s sensor. This can be measured in fractions of seconds or multiple seconds or minutes. A fast shutter speed is good for capturing action without motion blur. A longer shutter speed can help to create a motion blur effect. To get a clear shot of bird flapping its wings you might have to go to 1/1000th but for night time landscapes it could be as long as 15 seconds.
