This week we are looking at blur and frozen movement. Shutter speed - what we know is that the shutter speed controls the duration of the exposure. Meaning how much light is allowed to reach the sensor.
Less light (1/1000 sec) - is a fast shutter speed. This allows for movement to become frozen
More light (1 sec) - is a slow shutter speed. This allows for the shutter to stay open longer producing images where movement is blurry. These are often used for artistic images.
Francesca Woodman an American photographer who is best know for her black and white picture of herself and female models. Below is an example of a slow shutter speed, where Francesca is moving.

This is an example of a fast shutter speed shot - capturing the subject in motion
