In this post I’m going to discuss Shutter Priority Mode, usually designated by an S on your camera mode dial if it has one. (Tv, or time value, on Canon cameras.)
What is Shutter Priority Mode?
It’s called Shutter Priority Mode because you are making the shutter speed your priority in how you expose the image. In Shutter Priority Mode you control the shutter speed and allow the camera to automatically choose the correct aperture to go with it.
