October is one of those special months that has 5 Tuesdays..and hence in addition to our monthly competition at our photo club, we also have a photo workshop. I’m excited because this workshop is all about shooting water droplets….and I’ve never really given that a go.
Sean has done all the hard work prior to us getting there. There are a number of setups that we can practice at…and I give the wineglass a go. Sean has has fastened a wineglass on a piece of wood which sits on top of a bucket. Our task is to photograph this has he carefully pours coloured liquid on to it. Our camera’s are set on manual. We choose a fast shutter speed (1/1600 sec) and an aperture of 7.1. I adjust the ISO, to ensure my photograph will be exposed according to the available light. I end up with an ISO of 800, which is quite high but expected under the light conditions. I manually focus my camera and as Sean begins to pour I begin to shoot…….!
I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it. ~Author Unknown
