About This Class

Have you ever wanted to stop your kids from running around for just one second?*  Want to capture the blurry excitement of a fast moving car? Have you always wanted to shoot start trails or "write" with sparklers?  You can learn all how to do all of this with your photography when you learn how to use shutter speed!

Using Shutter Speed To Capture Motion is the second course in my Photography Foundations Series. This class will focus on using your shutter speed in manual mode on your DSLR or mirrorless camera. Understanding how to use shutter speed is key to make creative choices on how motion is seen in your images. 

We'll talk about the effects of both slow and fast shutter speed on motion, how to utilize shutter speed in night images as well as some fun bonus ideas for using alternative light sources at night.

The Photography Foundations Series is created to get you out of auto mode and into manual mode on your camera so that you can take control of your images and to create the images that you want to make.  Each class is short and sweet at less than 35 minutes. You can even learn on your lunch hour!

*BTW this class won't actually teach you how to stop your kids from running around IRL, but it CAN teach you how to freeze their moves in a photo ;)

This class is for beginners who are learning how to use their camera in manual mode and for anyone else who is looking for a refresher in the basics of manual camera use.

REQUIRED: DSLR camera or other  camera with manual mode capabilities.
