Playing With My New Camera: Shutter Speed

Lesson 2: Shutter speed. 

Just like it sounds.  How quickly the shutter opens and shuts when you snap a photo.  The number represents the fraction of a second the shutter is open.  Very math-ish.  I like math.  Obviously the quicker the speed, the more still of a shot you get because it freezes the motion of whatever you're taking a picture of.  (Or that's how I envision it anyway.)  However, based on my examples, as the speed got quicker, the picture got darker.  I'm assuming because less time means less light allowed in?

Check out my example photos!  I'm having lots of fun learning!  Thanks to Aimee at It's Overflowing for the online lessons! :)
