Photography SKills - Water Experiments

July 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Two times now I've headed out to local waterfalls, streams and ponds with the intention of practicing speed, f/stop, ISO combos that result in (a) slightly blurred water but sharp surrounding features; (b) static water and good, crisp depth of field - for example, a long upward water stream where I also want the surrounding trees, bushes to be part of the photo-story; (c) slow, dynamic water flowing. I have some good examples, and outcomes will be the subject of my next post --  because, I realize, I need to spend a fair amount of time figuring how to put samples of shots side by side for demonstration.

For now, since time is limited today, here are my water-practice favorite shots. 

The first is an HDR, with a little bit of Lightroom post-production work. Leica V-Lux4, metadata and bracketing with Aperture Priority as follows:

1/80, f/4.5/ISO 100

1/125, f/4.5, ISO 100

1/200, f/4.5, ISO 100

 

 

This second one strayed from the waterfall practice intention - but who can resist water droplets on an early morning hike!

Leica V-Lux 4, 1/60, f/4.0, ISO 100, focal point 4.5mm
