3). shUtter speed and motion The shutter is the mechanical device that allows light into the camera, and shutter speed is the amount of time that the shutter remains open to allow light in for a particular shot. Shutter speed is measured in fractions of a second, so 1/500 sec. is a much faster shutter speed (the shutter is open for a much shorter period of time) than 1/8 sec. 3 I chose to meter for the shadows on the bride’s face, which rendered soft, glowing highlights, radiant skin, and a drop-off into the darker areas of the image that help focus attention on the bride’s expression.
