What two elements affect shutter speed?

What does a higher shutter speed mean?

Shutter speed is a measurement of the time the shutter is open, shown in seconds or fractions of a second: 1 s, 1/2 s, 1/4 s … 1/250 s, 1/ 500 s, etc. … In other words, the faster the shutter speed the easier it is to photograph the subject without blur and “freeze” motion and the smaller the effects of camera shake.

What is the best shutter speed for indoors?

1/60 to 1/200When shooting indoors, it would be recommended to shoot on shutter priority mode (Tv for Canon, S for Nikon) with a shutter speed no slower than 1/60 to 1/200. Anything higher than 1/200 may gain interference from any artificial lighting source you may have.

The sharpest aperture is when the overall image is at its sharpest. The sharpest aperture of your lens, known as the sweet spot, is located two to three f/stops from the widest aperture. Therefore, the sharpest aperture on my 16-35mm f/4 is between f/8 and f/11.

What is the best white balance for indoors?

Higher color temperatures (over 5000K) are considered “cool” (i.e. Blue’ish). Lower color temperatures (under 5000K) are considered “warm” (i.e. orange’ish). Therefore if you are shooting indoors under tungsten lighting at 3200K you will set your white balance for indoor shooting at this color temperature.
