Shutter speed effect on snowfall

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Great sequence of images tally with my general experience:


  • 1/100  looks slushy, grey and indistinct “cords” (not flakes/lumps)
  • 1/500  looks crisp – can see individual snow flakes/lumps falling

Also, from my own experience,  is best to focus on 2 metres or so away.  Focus matters since DOF small when aperture maxed as one may do to allow max shutter speed (depending on lighting conditions, most likely overcast)
