03. Shutter speeds

In this chapter Karl shows you just how you can adjust your shutter speed to freeze time and to capture motion as well as how to use the in camera light meter to ensure that your photos are correctly exposed every time. Through the practical demonstration of capturing an image of a young child riding his bike Karl demonstrates how to keep the action alive in your photographs and how applying some simple settings and a few professional photography tips can really make the difference.


  1. hahaha!! What a little cutie that little boys is. Quite a character. Presumably your son? Thanks to him for helping 🙂

  2. Hi Karl…. (last comment I promise!)
    I have set up my camera and just use the tap water at various speed. The subject is not great as I would love the sea, but the ‘sea’ tap just have to do. I did what you told me to do and the penny dropped. Thank you ever so much for your ‘clear and precise’ information, Karl. You are a natural speaker and a brilliant teacher without a doubt.

    1. Hey Shane it doesn’t have to be your last comment! I’m glad the training is working for you. I’m sure you have lots of beautiful coastline in Ireland to go an put it to the test. Cheers 🙂

  3. I think it’s better if you have English subtitle especially for international student like me because there are some words that I don’t understand therefore I had to replay few times but still couldn’t catch up

  4. Hi Karl, do we take multiple pictures and then combine it for final product or a single shot.
    If multiple shots, do the focus point change or the aperture/shutter.

    1. Hi Shyamanta, in product photography multiple shots can often be useful but I don’t see that it would be useful in the examples in this chapter?

  5. G’day mate, just signed up. I’ve noticed from the video’s online from yourself and numerous other photographers that they never seem to be dressed for the water. All rugged up in the cold and shade in the heat but water always seems to catch you guys out. Anyway, content is presented well and you cant beat the price. Cheers.
