This week I got to learn more about my camera and how I can capture motion by simply adjusting the shutter speed and the ISO to make sure I am capturing the details.  I did many tests runs on which shutter speed was good and for what motion.  I discovered 1/1000 can freeze action on moving cars and people. And If I want to go to the extreme to catch birds in flight, I can set it at 1/2000.  I felt portraits worked very well at 1/250.  When I want to show movements in the photos, I learned that we must set the shutter speed at a very slow speed.  I tried experimenting a waterfall with at least 5” of shutter speed.  I was able to retain some texture, and it was able to see a smoother and dreamy effect on the waterfall.
