Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and taking a peak. Now I never claim to know everything, or be perfect, or even being able to spell! I work really hard to not only be a good photographer, but have a personal connection to my clients and understanding what they want (especially when they might not know). In addition I love to help others improve their own pictures. Let's face it...no one can afford a personal photographer to follow them around 24/7 (but if you do know someone give them my name!).
My blog has a collection of advise, current photo experiences and the personal updates. My new 2012 series (TT- Tipsy Thursday) is a combo of all kinds of questions I've received, things I've seen & even those mistakes I've made in my years of shooting. I'm ALWAYS in need to know what other people want to hear about, so please email me with ANY suggestions. Again thanks for stoping by and hopefully you enjoy!
When you're using either shutter priority or manual settings these are where you should start with your shutter speeds in certain situations. Now there is no "fixed" settings so these are suggestions where to START!
- Wide Landscape being hand held: 1/30th sec or higher
- Telephoto shots of non-moving subjects: 1/200th sec or higher
- Freezing motion across the frame (like kids sports): 1/500th sec or higher
- Freezing motion coming towards the camera (like child running in a field) 1/250th sec or higher
- Freezing action with a long lens: 1/1000th sec or higher
- Panning (following motion): 1/10th to 1/30th sec
- Blurred water: ½ sec or longer TRIPOD A MUST!
- Car light tracers and fireworks: ½ sec or longer TRIPOD A MUST!
