Photographing the Movement of Water

Photography No Comments »

While working on my Gile Pond Project, It was a particularly gloomy looking scene.  The only thing of interest seemed to be the movement of the water.  I experiemented a bit with shutter speeds and decided this was the best of the lot.  Faster speed and the waves were too defined, slower and they were just smeary.  This is a hand-held shot.  If I had a tripod, I might have been able to make a slower speed work pretty well.

I love these shots.  The lighting was almost perfect.  The pond was still.  The air was almost crystal clear.  The sky was interesting enough to add some drama in the reflection.

A Fun Photo Experiment

Photography 3 Comments »

Today I showed up for my Gile Pond Project and the ice has not only melted, but it was completely still.  It made for some pretty awesome photos.  After I was done, I decided to have some fun by throwing a rock into the pond.

The first photo is of the rock just about to hit

Rock about to land in still pond.

The next photo is the splash.  I used a high shutter speed for this series (1/320).

The next one is a second or so after the splash to allow for a larger ripple effect to form.

This final shot shows the purpose of the splash.  I wanted to see what the ripples did to the mirrored trees.  Beautiful! (CLICK ON IT TO VIEW A MUCH LARGER VERSION)

Even though this is a contrived photograph in nature, it was a fun experiment that I may use in the future.  The key word here is fun, which is why I'm taking photos in the first place.
