Shutter Speeds & Water


 © Ellen Yeiser

Awe summer, what a great time to get outside and photograph mother nature. Water is a fascinating and endless subject. When shooting water, shutter speed is everything. If you want the water to have a silky, white feel or show motion use a slow shutter speed. You may have to use a neutral density filter to get a slow enough shutter speed. To freeze water use a high shutter speed. I used a a shutter speed of 250 as I wanted the reflections to be frozen and clear.  Experiment with different shutter speeds as you shoot water.
