Could shutter speed be the missing piece?
You haven’t tried everything until you try mastering it
Get access to a digital workshop that’s focused completely on you
Although you probably hate admitting it, you know it’s true. When you’re out shooting, you usually think of your shutter speed in terms of light. And light only. Most of the time, you can set at 1/250 or 1/500 and forget it.
Sure, some of the photography’s greatest magic is hiding right there in that dial. But you still consider light the single most important part of shooting. And I’m not here to argue against that. Getting your light perfect might be the most important first step.
But no matter what, it’s only the first step! Imagine if Picasso only drew in pencil. I mean, he would still be great, and he would still be famous, but when he added color and paint to what he imagined, something greater happened.
Not using shutter speed at its fullest power is just like that. It’s denying yourself a crucial tool. Why should you let its difficulty keep you from using it? It’s a tool that has a great chance of making your photographs stand out. If it means carrying a tripod, so be it.
Controlling shutter speed is more than controlling motion
It’s how you can also increase or decrease sharpness, bump up lighting or bring down shadows. There are so many techniques that when we found Brent Mail’s Master Shutter Speed, we couldn’t wait to get it in your hands.
It hits all the areas. Explains it in a fun, informative way. And will help you shoot better photographs. But the thing that sets it apart is its one-to-one training. It’s truly unique. Get this: after two lessons, you’ll be able to get your work looked at by pros!
Sweet, right? Not only will you get constructive feedback, but you’ll also have access to the instructors so that you can ask questions. It’s a digital workshop focused on making sure you master shutter speed — and in the end, shoot better photos — no matter the cost!
This course is designed to help you absorb all the info at an easy and relaxed pace. Every week for 6 weeks, you’ll get 2 lessons that you can watch online. Two photo challenges are included so that you get your work seen by the instructors: Brent Mail and Johny.
