Choosing the shutter speed for time-lapse photography

Rich: Shutter Speed is the second component of the exposure triangle. Now, with shutter speed, you have to decide if you're using it for technical or artistic purposes. Now, with shutter speed, you might use it to freeze the action. Maybe you want a very staccato type look, or to streak things out. For most of my time-lapse shooting, I use a slower shutter speed to get a lot of drama in the shot. So, by using that, that's going to let more light into the camera. So, balancing that out, you're going to have to make some adjustment.

If you can't pull it off, and you've got too much light coming into the camera, then go ahead and change the F stop. But if the F stop has gotten as small as you want it and you're still not there, then we've got our third component, which is ISO.
