Put your camera mode dial to S for shutter priority and your camera on a tripod.
You are going to take a series of photographs using shutter priority of the same moving object at 1/3 of a second, 1/10th of a second, 1/30th of a second, 1/60th of a second, 1/125th of a second, and 1/500th of a second.
When you return to the classroom, put your photographs on the Shutter speed 6 photo template found in My Big Campus under "resources". To download the file from press control + click where the title is and download linked file.
Put the appropriate shutter speed in order from slowest to fastest shutter speed. Indicate both shutter speed and aperture under each photograph, which you can find under "info" in iPhoto.
At the bottom of the template, answer the following questions:
1. Explanation of how you changed the camera setting to Shutter Speed
2. Explanation of what happens to the photograph when the shutter speed changes
3. Explanation of why you might want to have Shutter speed as a priority- what situations you would want to use Shutter Priority
Save the file as a photoshop file as lastname.firstname.shutterspeedexercise in your finished projects folder. Then merge layers and save as a JPEG file, print and three hole punch for your binder.
Once you are done with your template, go to My Big Campus and upload your best fast speed and slow speed photo for comparison under class discussions and answer the questions requested, specifically:
What the shutter speed and aperture is for each photo
What happens to the photograph when you use a slow shutter speed
what happens to the picture when you use a fast shutter speed
what your subjects were doing in the picture and why you chose to have them do so
What sort of things you could use a slow shutter speed for
What sort of things you would use a fast shutter speed for.
