Recently, I went to the lake and captured this image of the water. It was a beautiful, sunny day and the clouds and colors of the sky were reflecting on the surface of the water, making it look like a watercolor painting! Enjoy!
I took this image when I was in San Diego about a month ago and I loved the boats reflection on the water, as it looked like another world beneath. I turned the image upside down for a cool effect. Enjoy!
This back alley way in Merced always leaves a long strip of water in the parking lot after a rainstorm. I have always found the reflections in the water to be really interesting and fun to see when the light hits the water just right. I flipped this image upside down to give it an interesting effect. Enjoy!
I took this image near the canal that surrounds my house. I feel like this image perfectly captures the beauty of the Central Valley sunsets. Enjoy!
Today’s exercise requires a little bit of preparations. Get yourself a few balloons, fill them with water, hand them up with a string and photograph them while your are poking them with a needle. Here is a link with a detailed guide on how to do it. Go to http://www.digitalcameraworld.com/2013/10/15/high-speed-photography-ideas-how-to-capture-water-balloons-as-they-explode/
Instead of one I am using two strobe lights. Camera setting 55mm focal length cropped, f16, 1/20 sec. exposure time. In my other shots I increased the exposure time to freeze the action better.
Enjoy this exercise because it is a lot of fun!
PS: Don’t forget to cover up your strobe(s) and camera properly!
