Topic – Shutter Speed

David gave a great presentation on shutter speed.

Shutter speed is basically the amount of time the shutter is open.

Exposure Triangle - ISO > Shutter Speed > Aperture


A shutter speed below 1/60 makes it difficult to hand hold the camera - tripod becomes important.

For something like fireworks, you really need a tripod and a cable-release, so you can control the amount of time the shutter is open.

On a 70-300mm lens, you should not go under 1/300 for shutter speed.
