Between shutter speeds and apertures, you can have a lot of fun when photographing water water. Well, I can, at least. Here’s one example where I kept slowing down the shutter speed as I took the same shot three times.
In this first image, things were pretty close to “water moving along” speed.
Slowing it down a bit, the water starts to look silky in spots.
And at the slowest speed, with my camera set on a rock and using a 3-second timer to minimize shaking from when I pushed the shutter button, I got this shot, then converted it to sepia tones to make it look even more mystical.
Yeah, sometimes photography isn’t about the big shot, it’s about playing with the camera.
