Which shutter speed setting more likely stop the motion of a runner?

Changing the aperture to compensate may not be a viable option, and changing the ISO results in a noisier image. A 1/500s shutter speed is the best fast shutter speed in this case because it sufficiently stops the motion of the runner and allows the aperture and ISO to be set with optimum settings.

What is the best shutter speed for portraits?

Camera Settings and equipment to use for portraits:

  • Shutter speed – at least 1/200th handheld, or 1/15th on a tripod (faster if you’re photographing kids).
  • White balance – choose the appropriate preset for the lighting conditions or do a custom balance.

How do you explain shutter speed?

The faster the shutter speed, the shorter the time the image sensor is exposed to light; the slower the shutter speed, the longer the time the image sensor is exposed to light. If you are photographing a subject that is in motion, you will get different effects at different shutter speeds.
