Photography Tutorials - Water Splash Photography
LOKOSNIMKA - Water Splash Photography Settings, Some of the most beautiful photos I know about are a part of water photography, either it’s underwater or water drops and splash.
If you want to take a good water splash photo you don’t need a pool or a tub filled with it, you just need a transparent bowl filled with water, a digital camera on a tripod and good lighting. You should use macro mode on the camera to get the real close-up detailed photos.
Water Splash Photography Settings - Of course you will need a fast shutter speed to freeze the action, and a small aperture to get maximum depth. You can either use a high ISO setting or have a super bright lamp that will lighten up the water bowl.
A high-speed stroboscopic flash is also okay to use. If you want some cool water effects you can place a colorful paper under the bowl, so the water gets “colored”. Place the camera on the left of the bowl and the lamp on the right.
Average settings that you can begin with are ISO 500, Aperture F/6.3, and Shutter speed 1/1250th. You can work your own way from that. You can pre-focus with a fork in the water before you start shooting, or else your focus will go onto the colored paper instead of the splashes.
Water Splash Photography Settings - To get the drop or the splashes you can use a water bottle with a sports cap that you can squeeze more or less. Keep down the shutter button while you capture the drop, it will shoot off several photos that you can choose from. Play around with it and have fun!
