Beside my love for blue colour, I do have an obsession with the Pantone palette colours. I absolutely love how soft, airy and delicate they are. They bring so much brightness to my outfits hence the reason why I love incorporating them into my spring and summer looks. On this day, I kept it super cool by wearing a full blush outfit. The dreamy and charming details of this dress makes it perfect for the summer season.
If you been following me religiously on my blog, you may know that I do shoot some of my blog pictures myself. A few months ago, I registered for an online photography course at Creative Live, and whenever I learn something new, I do like to go out and give it a try. Many professional photographers would advise you, to stay away from taking pictures on an extremely sunny day. After several attempts, I came to realize that, you may or may not have a hate/love relationship with the sun. In some cases, the pictures might turn out really dark or not so smooth from the bright light.
So on this day, I learned how to play around with the shutter speed. It is on of the most important elements besides the Aperture and ISO when learning the camera settings. I am not an expert when it comes to photography, but I did learn a few things which I am going to share with you.
- shutter speed is like a split of a second
- Using a faster shutter speed freezes the movement of your object
- You can create blur motion with a lower shutter speed and lastly,
- You can regulate the amount of light you let in the camera by using both the fast and slow shutter speed as I did with the pictures below.
I used a very fast shutter speed 1/6000 to let in less light due to the fact that I was shooting on a very bright sunny day. I hope you like this post and in case you have a new DSLR camera and feel stuck with the settings, I highly recommend you check the amazing tutorials at Creative Live which are worth every penny.
Thank you for reading!! Have a super lovely week ahead.
