The primary compositional impact of shutter speed is on the rendering of motion. If an object and the camera are completely stationary, then it shouldn’t matter what shutter speed you use. But once even the slightest motion of camera or subject is involved, it is a very different story. If you consider camera and subject, then the way motion will be appear depends upon the movement of the camera, the movement of the subject, the relative direction of that movement, and the duration of time that is used to capture the motion.
