Shutter speed or, as it is also called, shutter speed is directly related to the transmission of motion in images. When shooting still subjects with a fixed camera, the shutter speed does not matter and is determined only by the required exposure. But when either the camera or the subject is in motion, choosing the appropriate shutter speed becomes not only a technical but also an artistic task.

Not to get confused: the higher the shutter speed, the shorter the exposure time than a shutter speed lower the shutter speed longer. Continue reading

The strategy for choosing the optimum diaphragm

Find the aperture value at which your lens shows the best sharpness, and use this value whenever possible (most often it is f/8 or so).
If you don’t have enough light, or if you want to highlight the main subject using a shallow depth of field, increase the size of the aperture, but try not to open it completely unnecessarily.
If the need has come, feel free to open the diaphragm and do not worry about it. In situations where you may need it, the aperture value is not the most important factor limiting the sharpness of images. The wiggle spoils the image much more ruthlessly than any lens aberrations. Continue reading
