Hi There!  I’m so glad you have stopped by.  Today’s short tidbit of Photo information is about shutter speed.  This is how fast or slow the lens of your camera will open and close. I have a great example in my collection of pictures.


When photographing water, a fast shutter speed can catch the individual drops of water coming from the fountain. To the eye this fountain was a smooth stream of water flowing. But, with a fast shutter I can see the individual drops.


While a slower shutter speed will blur the water into one smooth flowing stream.  Play around with pictures of water this week and share them next week with us! I didn’t slow the speed great amount, but I think you can see what I’m talking about.  A slower speed really is nice if you are photographing a stream or creek flowing.


Remember, the best camera is the one you have with you!

Okay, Let me hear from you!


This is the way it works.


  1. Link up and invite others to link up with you.
  2. Select the permalink to your post (not to your blog link, but the one to the post you would like to share).
  3. Using the blue linky tool at the bottom of the Photo Friday post enter your link.
  4. It will walk you through selecting your photo.
  5. Be sure you encourage who linked up before you.


If you are linking up with Photo Friday, there is no exception to rule number 5. You must visit the person who linked up before you and encourage them in their comments. This is fun and how we build community!
