For this exercise, we were instructed to explore the different elements of using shutter speed to include panning, slow shutter speed, really slow shutter speed, and really fast.
Using panning, I was able to make a picture of this car and keep the subject itself (the car) clear while the background is blurred. Without panning this would be backwards as the car is moving at a decent rate of speed.
This was the runoff from a gutter in Italy. I set the camera up on a tripod with a 30 second shutter speed. The long exposure turned all the normal splatter and splashes that would be cause midair with a fast shutter speed and turned them all into something that looks like cotton.
I set my camera up with a 2 second exposure. I was curious to see what would happen if I took a picture of the television. Everything around the TV and the TV itself is clear, but the it grabbed a few of the things that were on the TV itself and exposed them, which I think turned out really cool.
While this photo didn’t turn out how I envisioned, it was made using a very fast shutter speed. I was a passenger in a vehicle on a highway and using a very fast shutter speed I was able to make a picture that actually kept detail and definition of the fence.
