The May 2011 League City Photography Meet up took place on 5/5/11. Below are my notes.
The Art Alliance of Clear Lake (TAACCL) is accepting "ready to hang' submissions. Deadline is 5/21/11.
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.
