Week 38: Water

Photo by: Kai Jai –  Week 27: Water (2016)

Water is not only essential for basically every single living thing on this planet but is also an awesome photography subject! It provides millions of photographic possibilities because you can find water everywhere and in many different forms.

Water is not a passive object (such as a chair for example) but more of a ‘living entity’ with moods, power, and movement. You can zoom in on splashes, ripples or droplets or zoom out to photograph seascapes, lakes, puddles, rivers and swimming pools.

The wonderful world of wetness also gives us rain, reflections, condensation, melted ice and hundreds of sport activities. So now it is time to dive into this world and to make a splash!!

Tips and Tuts for this week:

Extra Credit Challenge: 1/2000th of a second

For some extra credit joojoo, set your shutter speed to a fast 1/2000th of a second! Water moves fast, so using a very high shutter speed will allow you to capture a splash, or even a single droplet of water in the air.
