Yesterday was about reading the manual for the camera and getting a feeling for how to change the settings. Today, is the first real "hands-on" day of learning how to use the camera although I may have cheated a bit and skipped ahead yesterday.
Anyway, today is all about learning how to adjust shutter speed and understanding how it effects your photo.
Shutter speed can be used two different ways, to allow more/less light in through the lens to brighten/darken the picture or to freeze time in action pictures. If being used to freeze time, the shutter speed would be very fast therefore the amount of time allowed to let light in is very small and would require adjustments of the ISO and aperture.
Learning so much here, if you can't tell! :-)
Here are a few pictures of the difference in shutter speed in regards to light.
My hubby was supposed to help me out with action shots today but he got called into work and wont be back until tomorrow. Another day then...
