Using Slow Shutter Speed to Stop Motion

Most of the advice you can read online will tell you to work with a shutter speed that’s short enough to ensure sharpness and remove motion blur. That is unless you’re shooting landscapes in which case you should use a tripod and it’s ok to use longer shutter speeds.

This is the kind of thinking that I believe limits creativity. It’s kind of a black or white thinking with no room in between. After actually spending some time shooting different subjects in various conditions, you’ll come to realize that things are a little bit different.
