Camera School – Running Water

Posted by on Dec 19, 2013 in Camera School, Photography | One Comment

After the disappointment of being awarded a silver for module 2 due to the fact I misinterpreted the brief, the phrase “must try harder” comes to mind. With this in mind I eagerly awaited the next challenge although when I found out module 3 required an image of “running water” I was a little worried.

The main technical challenge was to use a slower shutter speed to get a feel of movement and this was something I’d tried previously albeit somewhat randomly. The tuition really helped, and the brief very clear about how to get the right results. ISO 100, F16, or a similar combination to force a shutter speed of less that 1/60th. All I needed to do was to find a good source of running water.

Not wanting to travel too far the obvious choice was Bradgate Park (as featured in a previous location post) which contains a number of small streams that allow rain water to cascade through the park. I took around a dozen images and finally decided on the one below as it gave the best sense of movement due to the fact the shutter speed was 1/5th of a second. Fingers crossed !!
