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

  1. I love that top drop the most and I love the warm tones of the light.

  2. Nice catch! The little things in life,

  3. Fantastic! Your use of the warm glow of the setting sun to light the image is perfect. I really like the close up view. I hope you do go re-visit this and experiment some more. It’s an interesting image and a great way to learn more about controlling your camera.

  4. You got some lovely shots here and I love that warm glow from the setting sun.

  5. Great job! Love the lighting and the reflection that you captured.

  6. Fun experiment. Patience really pays off!!

  7. Absolutely love the very first image and those reflections in the water drop…nice and crisp and what great colors!
