Shutter Speed Photographs 2017

In Photography, Shutter Speed is the amount of time (in seconds or fractions of a second) the shutter on a camera opens up to allow the image sensor (or film in the olden days) to capture light and create an image. Students in digital photography learned how to use shutter speed to create a variety of effects in photographs of moving objects. 

FREEZING MOTION: Students used a very fast shutter speed to freeze their subject in the photo.
