Summer — time for some water photographs. The difference in the way the water is captured in the two photos above is shutter speed. The first was taken at 1/250 of a second and the second at 1/1600. Here’s what the first one would have looked like at a faster shutter speed (1/1250):
While we were at the pool, my daughter asked if she could help with a photo. I couldn’t turn that down. With such a willing participant, I was able to try both a fast and slower shutter speed and see what I liked better. I like the motion of the drops in the top photo as well as her expression. (I said to her, “Look like you’re having fun!”) In second photo, I liked the drops being frozen. It brought to mind snowy photos from six months ago in weather that is hard to imagine today.
