This was the hardest day on manual.
My kids. Are. Fast.
For a beginning photographer – I threw in the towel on ALL-MANUAL.
But guess what – there’s a little mode for people like us and it’s not auto.
Check out that Tv mode.
This is basically shutter speed preference. In my last post, I wrote about how you can use shutter speed to capture action. A low fraction = stopping action. A high fraction = action blur.
I.E. 1/4000 stops action
When you use the Tv mode – you get to set the shutter speed first. Then your camera will automatically do the rest of the work for you.
It’s like magic.
Here’s a couple of photos I caught on Tv with the shutter speed set at 1/800.
The best thing about this preference setting mode is Tv isn’t the only one.
There’s also Av! This is aperture preference setting! Remember, from my last post on this – aperture gives you the chance to choose whether you want a blurry background or not.
