    Hey guys, I thought I'd share one of my "interactive" flash projects... it's to help you guys learn shutter speed.

    Check it out and tell me what you think! :)

    I think I would do it a little differently to truly show the differences in shutter speed.

    I would do a series of something that is actually moving (Fountain, waterfall, flowing stream, use your imagination), with all of the pictures in the series properly exposed.

    In the series you have now, shutter speed isn't even a factor. Nothing is moving.
    Yeah, you're showing how shutter speed affects exposure (when nothing else is changed to compensate), but you're not really showing what a 1 second exposure looks like compared to a 1/1000th second exposure.

    ah, very good point... well what if I did both? Then I would be showing both aspects-motion-exposure.

    I agree. I would do a motion type thing as well as what you have already.

    Both would be good. What you have now is good as far as understanding the effects on exposure, but it's missing the 'motion'.

    If you didn't say that you were adjusting shutter speed in the lesson (?), it wouldn't be immediately clear. It could have just as easily been ISO, and to some extent aperture.
