All right, we’ve pretty much covered the basics necessary for using the Program Mode. Next step, taking you to Tv Mode.
Tv Mode is also known as Shutter Speed Priority AE. This simply means that most your attention if focused on your shutter speed, how long your sensor is exposed to the light of the scene in front of you.
The Shutter speed will determine how bright your photos will be, but also how blurred. The longer you let it open the more blur will be in your photos, and the faster you have you shutter speed the sharper your images will be.
But, sometimes you must have a slower speed in order to let in enough light to the camera for you to see anything in the photo.
Here are a couple of examples, I’m having a hard time finding my blurred ones, so I’ll just demonstrate how the light can be affected right now.
The Above photos are of the same flower, at the same spot, during the same time of day, on the same day. The only thing that was changed between the two was the shutter speed. See how it makes a difference?

Lesson: Shutter Speed, how much light do you want? This WILL affect your photos in a very artistic way, depending on how much light you permit into it. Be creative with your shutter speed.
