Exploring Shutter Priority

In previous articles I covered fully automatic (Auto and Program) and Aperture Priority. In this article we are going to take a look in to Shutter Priority.

Shutter Priority is another semi-automatic feature in camera exposure modes. It usually represents as TV, S, and SV. Therefore, in Shutter Priority mode, you select the shutter speed and camera sets the aperture and Iso automatically.

Shutter priority uses:

When taking photos of moving objects, photographers prefer to use shutter speed mode. Whether you want to freeze the moving object or to show the blurred effect of movements, you need to control the shutter speed.

I took this photo in Program mode and camera set the shutter speed and the aperture:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22360″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInUp” title=”Program Mode”][vc_column_text]Clearly, it is not an interesting photo. Everything is flat. Therefore, I decided to make this scene a little more appealing by using the shutter speed. I slowed down the shutter speed to 4 seconds (of course, the camera was on the tripod!) and Boom! A very dynamic picture![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22361″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInUp” title=”Slow Shutter Speed”][vc_column_text]On the other hand, there are times that photographers want to freeze the movements. Ergo, using a faster shutter speed is a must. The following photos are about freezing the movement to create amazing effects:[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”22363″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInUp” title=”Fast Shutter speed”][vc_single_image image=”19928″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeInUp” title=”Fast Shutter Speed”][vc_column_text]In the Digital Photography Bootcamp, you learn how to use the shutter speed to its potentials and students get the assignments to practice on these features. Our next bootcamp program starts June 5th, and tickets are selling fast.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
