Lesson 2: Shutter Speeds

Welcome to your Lesson 2: Shutter Speeds

1. Which line has the “full” f-stops in the correct order?
2. Which line has the “full” shutter speeds in the correct order?
3. If you move the f-stop from F11 to F8, what happens to the amount of light that reaches the sensor?
4. If you move the shutter speed from 1/125 to 1/250, what happens to the amount of light that reaches the sensor?
5. If you move the shutter speed from 1/60 to 1/30, what happens to the amount of light that reaches the sensor?
6. If you were using a shutter speed of 1/500, what speed would you need use if you wanted to cut the amount of light reaching the sensor, in half?
7. If you were using a shutter speed of 1/250, what speed would you need use if you wanted to double the amount of light reaching the sensor?
8. What is the most likely outcome if you change the shutter speed from 1/60 to a speed of 1/15?
9. What is the most likely outcome if you change the shutter speed from 1/125 to a speed of 1/500?
10. Which of the following shutter speeds might be best for photographing a runners crossing the finish line at a race?
