Perfect Accidents

I decided to get out the tripod and play with shutter speed today. Since I’m just a beginner and I have seen this tutorial everywhere I decided I should try it out. I quickly decided that the slow shutter speed with the faucet didn’t have the same feel as a running river :). So I tried a ton of fast shutter speed photo’s. Ones with plates, ones with tinfoil, ones with food coloring, and when nothing was turning out quiet right and I was putting everything away, I decided to snap a couple more. What can I say, I’m a glutton for punishment.

When I turned my camera sideways I got these lovely little photos. The green cast is from my flash going through the Dawn dish soap. I also like the simplicity of the stainless steel sink and the clear martini glass.

On another note, thank you for all of your well wishes. I am starting to feel like my old self again. I’m not going running anytime soon, but I can make it through a normal day! Yay!

    Great photos! What shutter speed did you end up using for each? I’m new to my Nikon D70 and would love some tips from a fellow beginner.

    Very nice!! I never would have known that the glass was in the sink if you hadn’t said so, just looks like a cool backdrop! I haven’t attempted anything like this yet – did you set your camera to continuous shooting for these?

    Very nice shots! I’ve never tried one of these waterdrop shots, I guess one day I should.

    I have to say, very creative using the soap bottle as well as the sink! Great job capturing water droplets as they can be difficult to capture, keep up the great work Morgan. 😀

    It’s fun experimenting and learning new stuff, isn’t it?
    Looks like you’re on right track.

    Nice! I love to catch water drops. The stainless steel and the green work out really well for *mood* of the water.

    Very nice! I haven’t had much luck catching water droplets. Probably because I haven’t been patient enough.
