Quick Camera Tip: EASY FAST SHUTTER PHOTOGRAPHY TIP

A Tip on Fast Shutter Photography 

Shooting at a fast shutter speed is essential for freezing the motion of a moving subject. But how fast should you go? Here is a quick tip on selecting the correct shutter speed by @BrettMichaud, our new instructor. 

Fast Shutter Photography Tip

Experiment different fast shutter speeds to find out the correct one, without over kill the ISO.
Experiment different fast shutter speeds to find out the correct one, without over kill the ISO.

Fast Shutter Photography Tip by Brett Michaud

Whether the beating of a bird’s wing, the movement of leaves in the wind or the ocean’s rolling waves, there is only one way to avoid a blurry image when things are moving: a suitably fast shutter speed!

And how fast that shutter speed should depend on the speed of movement and your focal length. A quick rule of thumb for waves is to take a shot at 1/250th of a second and then check the image to see if there is any blur. If there is, you should, at the very least, double the speed to 1/500th for starters.

I will be the first to admit that the settings used to capture this image are NOT ideal! Admittedly, 1/1600th of a second is extreme overkill to catch the waves without any blur. On this particular day, to shoot at this speed, I had to turn my ISO up to 1000. This rendered a final image that was filled with noise. What I should have done was drop my ISO until my shutter speed was between 1/500th and 1/1000th of a second. As a result, I would have ended up with a much cleaner image.

Full disclosure: As I rarely see waves like this where I live, I will admit to being a little “shutter release” happy and thus, did not check my settings before I started snapping shots. As a result, I ended up with an image that I like but is filled with noise. The lesson here: always check your settings before you start shooting. But hey, no one is perfect! This is a lesson I learned the hard way.

Quick Camera Tip: SETTING FOR SEASCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY

A Quick Tip On Camera Setting For Seascape Photos

I decided to share a Camera Setting tip every Monday. 

This tip is about Seascape photography by @BrettMichaud, our new instructor. 

Seascape Photography Tip

Vancouver Island Photo Tour
Vancouver Island has a unique landscape. Discover the beauty of West Coast.

Seascape Photography Tip by Brett Michaud

On this rather dark, overcast day, I wanted to capture the stormy feel of the ocean by freezing the motion in the water and showing the size of the sea. It required a fast shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second. The use of f/11 provided an adequate depth of field.
The low ambient light levels coupled with the mid-range aperture setting and fast shutter speed meant I needed to use ISO 320 to achieve a good exposure.

It’s important to remember that when photographing ocean waves, it is always wise to underexpose your image by a ½ to 1 full stop, so the crests of the waves are not blown out.

Do you want to learn more?

If improving your seascape photography is something you’d like to do, we invite you to join us at our workshop on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.

DISCOVER VANCOUVER ISLAND

Capture the Beauty of Sunset and Sunrise in Vancouver Island 

Sunset and Sunrise scenes are very mesmerizing; Mother Nature creates an impressive colourful work of art in the sky during these times of the day. Here are two tips for better sunset images:
1- Use the lowest possible ISO to capture colours.
2- Use Spot Metering to set the exposure for the sky, not the foreground.
