For the first project of the class, the goal was to learn about the foundations of photography and two major components, shutter speed and aperture. The shutter speed plays an important role in showing motion in a photo. A slow shutter speed will create a blur that trails behind whatever object or person is moving. A faster shutter speed will stop the moving object in its tracks, making a speeding car look parked. The goal of this project was to express motion in a still photograph.
