Shutter Speed

The shutter speed on a camera determines how quickly the opening that lets in light opens and closes. This can therefore freeze action if it's really quick, or blur action if it's slower.

For example, here is a water drop, first slow so it's blurry, then quick so it's frozen. Shutter Speed photography

This waterfall also goes from a blurry slow speed to a crisp fast speed.
