Photo Workshop

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…….!

The following are a few of the images I captured that day……….2012 10 31 Water Drops (4 of 4)2012 10 31 Water Drops (3 of 4)2012 10 31 Water Drops (2 of 4)

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
