shutter speed


(f/1.4, 1/400, ISO-400)

Speeding up the shutter speed captures the water droplets mid-air for a cool time freeze effect.


(f/14, 1/30, ISO-400)

Slowing down the shutter speed here has the adverse effect to the previous image. The water seems like it’s in motion.


(f/20, 1/40, ISO-200)

I slowed down my shutter speed, but I remained focused on my subject as I panned the shot. This resulted in my subject being clear but my background being blurred, to give the impression of motion.


(f/22, 30′, ISO-200)

The long exposure on this shot makes me seem like a spooky ghost, even though I didn’t move too much.


(f/7.1, 1/4, ISO-400)

I lowered the shutter speed and took the shot while zooming out with my camera. That’s how I achieved the weird blur effect.


(f/3.5, 4′, ISO-100)

The subject was in a very dark room. We shot with a very slow exposure and lit the subject from various angles with different colored lights, resulting in the cool lighting effects. Could not have been possible with faster shutter speed.

Some sky shots. I actually shot these at the same time of day. I think the top one is just brighter because I have a lower shutter speed and am letting more light in my camera.


(f/5.6, 1/2, ISO-1600)

The slow shutter speed captures the lights on the bus very well and makes the bus very blurred out and in-motion as a result.
