Shutter speed.

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

Shutter speed refers to the amount of time the shutter is open for while it is taking a picture. It is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls the amount of light which passes through the lens that reaches the image sensor.

Usually, the shutter speed is manually adjustable. The measurement of the shutter speed is in seconds. Ranging from 30 seconds, to 1/8000 of a second!
Also, the slower the shutter speed the more motion it will catch within the frame. Likewise with a faster shutter speed, it will catch less motion.

As the photo below illustrates, a slow shutter speed (left) allows more time to catch the motion of the water flowing. On the other hand, a faster shutter speed (right) allows less time to catch the motion of the water and the photo captures a freeze like motion image.
