Slow Shutter Speeds Up the Action

Dog shakes off water. With slow shutter speed, blur makes for an interesting photo.Shaking Dog

A slow shutter speed can really change the look and feel of the subject. In these three photographs I was using a shutter speed of 1/60 of a second. Really quite slow for pet photography unless you want to really accentuate movement. I watched this dog do all kinds of gyrations to shake water from his coat. The slower shutter speed the more pronounced the motion.


I really like the bottom photo as his nose remained perfectly still while the rest of his body did a complete turn first one way then another. That is amazing.
