www.joshuadabel.com Have you ever taken a photo and notice that it comes out blurry? What about the video you shoot? Suppose you own a popular sporting blog. Your readers depend upon you for highlights and interviews with up and coming sports stars. You commission a video of a local high school soccer player who will be interviewed on your blog later that week. Upon reviewing the video, you notice that the action shots are blurry. The cut-a-ways of the soccer ball slicing down the field looks more like a streak than a ball. Whether you want want a blurry image or a sharper image is a matter of creative choice. It is one of the great things about creating photography or videography: there are no wrong answers. The only limits are the limits of your imagination. Now, if you are looking for a sharper image, look to your shutter speed. This magical element denotes exactly what it says. It controls how quickly the shutter will open and close. The quicker the shutter opens and closes, the more crisp and clear the image will appear. The longer the shutter stays open, the more the image will appear to blur. With that said, there are other conditions that need to be taken into consideration. The primary element to consider in any video shoot is the amount of light available. If you are taking fast action shots and want those clips to be crisp make sure to have plenty of light. Because the shutter is opening and closing much quicker this does not allow much time for light to pass through the lens. So pump up the light! If you are looking for a cool night shot, it will be important to set your shutter speed low to allow any light available to pass through the film or sensor. The important thing to remember when creating more dynamic, eye-catching video is to get creative. Turn off the auto settings on your camera and try out new things. Most people use digital photography and video, so there is an endless supply "film."
