These were taken with my Canon 950SD, a point & shoot camera… which means that I am unable to to tweak my settings like a SLR — but I wanted to see if I could do this anyway. I took these between 6:48 and 7:00 in the evening.. thus the sunset glow to the pictures. I used my 5″ mini- bendy tripod. I set the camera to take continuous photos… I figured that I would get a good drop at some point. You’d be surprised how many frames missed the drop all together or caught a not-so-interesting drop.
I took these Tuesday evening, the evening before John Greengo’s class on exposure, thus I did not experiment with ISO or Exposure Compensation the 2 things that I can control with my Canon. I might now go back to this faucet and experiment some more.
Top photos: ISO 8o f5.8 1/200 6:48pm
Bottom 2 photos: ISO 80 f/5.8 1/100 7:00pm
All 4 photos had the same post-processing: adjusted levels
