Exercise: Shutter Speeds
This exercise aims to show the effect of different shutter speeds on movement across the frame - in this case, cyclists in Richmond Park. The camera was set up on a tripod with a manual focus set to capture the cyclists as they passed in both directions. I used a 70-200 mm zoom lens set to a focal length of 90mm. In shutter priority mode, the camera automatically adjusted the aperture. Capturing the cyclists mid-frame each time wasn't easy due to their speed so I've cropped the images to centre the cyclists. I planned to use 10-12 images but as there were quite noticeable differences between shutter speeds I ended up including more than this.
Movement is still frozen at 1/1250 although there is a little blurring of the spokes.
