Camera Basics: How to Use Your Camera’s Shutter Priority Mode as a Creative Tool (VIDEO)

Earlier this week we posted a simple primer explaining how a camera’s metering system works. In the quick video below, pro Brian Worley examines the Shutter Priority mode and demonstrates when and how you can use this setting as a creative tool.

Worley is a British photographer and an experienced instructor, and in just three minutes you’ll see him use a fast shutter speed to freeze movement like a bird in flight, and a slow shutter speed to blur an image and capture the dynamics of movement.

You’ll follow Worley as he shoots variety of images with different shutter speeds, and see the resulting photos right out of his camera. There are more helpful tips on The Photographer Academy YouTube channel, and be sure to take a look at the primer we posted earlier this week explaining how a camera’s metering system works.
