Exercise: Shutter speed

So, shutter speed is a pretty intuitive thing to get. It's a little bit easier to understand than aperture, because it's just kind of make sense. You take a faster shutter speeds. You're getting a narrower slice of time. You're freezing more motion. Nevertheless, you need to practice with it. You've learned the concept of shutter speed. You've learned how to control it with shutter priority. Now it's time to go out and give it a try, because it can take a while to learn to get your camera set properly, simply going to pay attention to shutter speed, and particularly if you want to start doing some trickier thing--like trying to blur motion, trying to pan to blur backgrounds-- you need to practice that stuff.

So, get your camera into shutter priority. Get out. Do a little practice. I'm going to stay here and pet Sage for a while.
