BEGINNER Tip of the week: Shutter speed

Being aware of your shutter speed means the difference between taking a blurry photo and a sharp photo. To capture fast action you will have to use a shutter speed over 1/500th of a second, if not 1/1000th to 1/2000th. This is the single most important skill for a new photographer. Why are mZP images so crisp and sharp? Correct shutter speed...

I’ve been taking photos professionally for 5 years now for my job as a product photographer, but as it turned out, there was a ton that I didn’t know about (lighting techniques, camera settings, gear, etc.). It’s easy to get into a slump with your photography, always resorting to same old tried-and-true methods. This class definitely reenergized me to spice up my shots.
— Rob Detric
Michael is very passionate about photography. His knowledge of lighting and technique is obvious. He is very thorough when explaining and teaching a process.

Thanks again, look forward to signing up for another class or two in the future.
