Question by : Shutter speeds explained?
Can someone please explain shutter speeds and aperture please

Best answer:

Answer by Bungholio
Shutter speed: how fast the shutter opens & closes
Aperture: the opening of the lens allowing light to enter

Fast shutter: freezes action. Slow shutter: blurs (great for waterfalls & such)

Large aperture (bigger hole): good for low light levels, decreases depth of field
Small aperture (smaller hole) for brighter light levels, increases depth of field
