2010/146: Creative Exposure

My contribution to Scott’s assignment
This was a tough one, because I had no idea what I wanted to do. I decided on rain, but of course when you want it to rain, it doesn’t. The garden hose isn’t hooked up yet (and who knows where that sprayer attachment is?!!), and so I grabbed a cookie sheet, plate, and glass (quite a set-up, isn’t it? 😉 ) and turned on the kitchen faucet instead… and had some fun playing with shutter speed.

Both pictures were taken with my 60mm macro lens, camera hand-held, ISO 200, f-3.2, and available light.

For the first picture I chose a fast shutter speed (1/160s) to freeze motion and to show the water bubbles as the glass flowed over.

For this picture I chose a slow shutter speed (1/25s) to show more motion and blur the water bubbles.
