Going Fast and Slow on Expedition EVEREST

The last Metadata element I want to go over is Shutter Speed.

The faster the shutter speed, the less motion in the scene until none can be detected.  Expedition EVEREST at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of the fastest rides at Walt Disney World but a fast shutter speed can make it look frozen to its tracks.

To show the speed of the ride, the shutter speed needs to be slow. I took a series of photos until I found a shutter speed which showed lots of motion but not too much as to stream the train out of the viewfinder.

Remember, to slow down motion, use a fast shutter speed. To show motion, use a slow shutter speed.
