I created this image using a 50mm prime lens at f 2.8. The subject (leaf) is in brown and the green bush forms the background color.

Enjoy this exercise and Fall colors offers excellent opportunities to create very intriguing images.

PS: I am sure you have noticed that there is a secondary color contrast in this image. The bottom is black and the top is white.

Water 04

There were two important factors to consider to create this image: Exposure time and light direction (time of the day). I photographed this fountain in the late afternoon using a long exposure time.

Enjoy and happy photographing!

Water 03

I created this image using an exposure time of 1/80 of a second. This creates these short streaks. You can experience with the time setting to see how long you want the streaks to be. Try using 1/60 or 1/100 of a second and observe the difference.

Enjoy and happy photographing!

Water 02

In this image I wanted to create this “soft” water effect using three neutral density filters, small aperture and low ISO setting. This effect is best created using an exposure time of  one second.

Enjoy and happy photographing!

Water 01

Go to a creek, river, ocean, local fountain etc. and photograph “water!”

I went to a local park and decided to “freeze the action” by using a fast shutter speed. I had to prefocus sure enough I caught a few drops in focus.

Enjoy this exercise and have a great week!
