The Motion of Water


© John Betham

Capture the motion of water, ripples and waves are great subjects. By utilizing the correct shutter speed for the movement of the subject (woman), and the background (water), I was able to find the best combination of blur and sharpness to create this image. There is movement in the water rushing off her body and in the swirling of the waters surface and yet there is still sharpness on her face where I wanted it to make her features legible in the photograph. This is often achieved through trial and error and a few test frames.
