Shutter speed is often one of those settings on a camera that photographers overlook. Most photographers these days just put their camera in aperture priority mode and let the camera decide shutter speed for them. While doing this is fine for most people and most situations, you might be ignoring some artistic potential, some mood, or some vibe by not taking just a little control of that shutter speed. In this article, we will look at the roll shutter speed plays on an image's mood and how just a few basic adjustments can have a big impact.
Lightroom has just released a nice update that brings in a few new features and performance improvements. Typically when Lightroom does their updates they are usually small little baby steps to a better product, which is great as it allows us to adjust and get used to the new features gradually, compared to if they were to overhaul everything completely in one go. But occasionally, Adobe will implement a small change that completely changes the way the software can be used, and sometimes it's game-changing.
Every so often I come across a lens that just gets me totally hooked and obsessed with photography. Like a Ring of Power, it whispers to me. My eyes glaze over as it consumes my mind, my wife in the background asking, "do you want chicken again, or should we make steak?" echos past my consciousness. "Why are ignoring me," she says flustered. But I am lost. Only at the sound of a squealing Orc swinging a chocolate popsicle over the white carpet does reality snap back in.
