Shutter speed is part of the exposure triangle. It has a direct impact on the amount of light that comes into your camera when you take a shot. The faster the shutter speed, the less light can come in, so the lower the exposure, resulting in a darker image. In this exercise you will take a series of shots at faster and faster shutter speeds, while you are in manual mode, so you can see this effect first hand.
