### 2. The Shutter

Lesson Info

The Shutter

next subject is going to be the shutter speed, and this is controlled in the camera. So obviously it comes right after the camera. So a quick quiz for you folks of these two numbers which number is larger, okay, might seem like a foolish question because you didn't even think about things. Nobody pulled out their IPhone to get an application to figure out which number is bigger. It's obvious you don't even think about things. The problem is, is that when we talk about shutter speeds, most of the shutter speeds we talk about our in fractions of a second. But when you look at him on your camera, they're not gonna be listed as fractions of a second. It's just going to say eight, and it really means 1/8 of a second, which is a shorter period of time than 1/2 of a second. So big numbers are small and small numbers are big when we get into the shutter speeds. Now, the shutter speed range that you were likely to see on a camera is gonna range anywhere from 8000 1 8/1000 of a second down to 30...

I'm not sure my first review posted. But I LOVE this class! John Greengo is a great, engaging teacher who is really adept at representing the concepts visually and excellent at explaining them verbally. I love how he goes through examples with photographs he has taken. Even though I only have a Nikon Coolpix digital camera, it does have Manual, Shutter priority, and Aperture priority modes. Through his class I've gotten a really good sense of how to balance ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. It's a great overview for me especially since I am new to photography, I can play around with some of these settings, and I have a greater understanding of what I might need in a higher level camera in the future. Money well spend! (For \$29, this is an absolute steal). John Greengo is an awesome teacher and I hope to take more of his classes in the future!

John is extremely articulate and is a great teacher with lots of visual aids and metaphors to help understand photography. I have been doing photography for a few years now and this class was a tremendous help in boosting my knowledge and refreshing my memory in multiple aspects of photography. The graphics that John uses are helpful and he even goes through images and asks which settings would be best to use and will go through the why. He makes things easy to understand and is very clear about the information he provides. I am so glad I took this course and I would highly recommend it even to an experienced photographer. Thank you John Greengo!

Bravo!!! I am an adventure traveler and have been to many places in the world. I recently completed hiking the ancient Inca Trail in Peru to Macchu Picchu with only my Canon Power shot camera. Even though I have some great photographs, I found that I wanted better quality and decided to buy an upgrade to a SLR camera. I have had no idea how to shoot in manual mode and even when I improved quality by shooting in Automatic mode with my new camera on a trip to Jerusalem, I knew I needed to get to manual as soon as possible. I have an upcoming trip to hike to Mt. Everest Base camp and so I decided to check into this course via Facebook. I am so glad I did! I now have enough information to begin to practice as I prepare for my trek. I am confident that if I need further information as I learn, that I can participate in future courses to improve my knowledge and capabilities. Thank you!
