Fast Subject - sports/birds/moving cars - High Shutter speed ( 1/200" to 1/4000")
Slow motion effect - milky waterfalls, panning - Slow shutter speed (1/8"-1/50")
Long exposures - star trails, road trails - slow shutter speed( 15" to 30")
WARNING - Shutter speeds below 1/50" will lead to a blurred image and loss of sharpness due to hand movement
Values depend upon the lens that is attached. Typical values may range from f/1.2 to f/22
How to select aperture value
Low light - lower f value (f/1.2-f/2.8)
Harsh light - higher f value (f/6 and above)
Portraits - blurred background, subject in focus, lower f value (f/1.2 - f/2.8)
Landscapes - everything in focus - higher f value (f/8 -f/16)
