Camera Shutter Speed eBook

Photography Fundamentals : The Creative Use of Shutter Speed & Painting with Light

The two most powerful camera controls are aperture and shutter speed: no other controls affect the look of your photo in a positive way more than these two workhorses. But surprisingly few photographers really know how to maximize shutter speed to vary the look of a photo. All too often we habitually photograph a scene or object the same way which is boring for the photographer and boring for viewers.
