f/6.3 – Exposure 1/2500 – ISO 6400

I’ve always been fascinated with water and when I finally got a camera with an adjustable shutter speed I knew that I needed to get out and take some pictures of the beautiful liquid movement in a nearby bubbling stream. The setting was very dark and the water moved fast so I had to compensate for both light and movement. I had to use an extremely fast shutter speed to capture the bubbles clearly, but the faster your shutter speed the more light you need to let in and since the areas lighting was really dark I also used a high ISO (which is what has given it a little bit of a grainy oil painting look) and a small aperture (f-Stop) to let in as much light as possible (I know it’s confusing, the smaller the aperture the more light the camera lets in, but the depth of focus becomes less.

This week the pink flamingos were playing in the water at the Sequoia Park Zoo in Humboldt County California. The sun was shining so brightly on them as they splashed around I was able to capture this particular flamingo as it bathed in the shallows. The combination of the sunshine on the water and the camera settings I used allowed me to freeze the movement and the water perfectly. Next time you find yourself with a sunny day and splashing water give it a try.

The lamp on my bedside table. I love how you can almost feel the heat coming from the bulb, and these settings are perfect for capturing light without loosing definition.

f/11 – Exposure 1/100 sec – ISO 200

I find light so extremely beautiful and sometimes when I see a reflection I prefer to view it out of focus instead of in focus, so by finding a photo frame with lots of reflected light and turning the focus nob away from focus and into a blur you catch the beauty of the light without distracting the viewer with focused content. Try it! You’ll be happy you did.

 

And if my Facebook page gets to 100 “likes” this week I’ll give something really fabulous away!

Bamboo Silhouetted in the evening sun. These photos were not taken in black and white. The camera settings I used aimed strait at the sun allowed me the opportunity to capture a perfect silhouette.
