Lecture 15: Cameras & Lenses (63)

In short shutter photography, does there need to be much more light than usual, since the sensor is exposed to the light for much less time and thus needs a stronger intensity of light to capture the same subjects?


@adham-elarabawy That's right. We have the shutter open for less time, and so the total amount of light hitting the sensor decreases. We typically need to compensate by adding more light into the scene.
