This week’s topic for the weekend photo challenge is water. Personally, I love water. Always have. It’s great stuff and I think it’s very important that everyone have free access to clean water. In Washington state, especially as of late, we are blessed with tons and tons of it, to the point people complain. But it’s not that way everywhere and that’s what I’m interested in seeing from all your different points of view.
What is water to you? Refreshment? Tool? Toy? Cleanser? It can be so many things depending on where we live and even the time of day.
I’m going to take something of an inverse tack on this week’s challenge. As I’ve said before, once you understand the relationship of the main three settings (Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO), you can control the others by making adjustment in others. In other words, do drop a not so subtle hint, you can get the depth of field you want by adjusting the shutter speed. This is valuable to know in situations when quick changes are needed and switching camera modes isn’t the best option. To that end, there is only one main subject you can use in your execution of this weekend’s challenge:
If you want to blur the water, you are going to have to figure out how to do it using aperture. It’s easy though, so don’t sweat it. Just have fun.
When you post a link to a photo, please post up the settings you used as well so others can learn what was going through your head as you took the shot. Good luck this weekend! As always, the curfew is my bedtime on Monday night.
