2023-06-14 Water Photography

The photo challenge theme for the next two weeks is “Water Photography” Thanks Deb for coming up with this idea. Try a google search for “Creative Water Photography” if you have trouble with inspiration. So it can be anything related to water. Splashes, waterfalls, falling or rebounding water drops, ice cubes, reflections in water, submerged rocks in a river etc etc.

Keep your image upload sizes at or below 1600 pixels wide or 1050 pixels high.

    Looking down to the river bed from a bridge over a Elbow river channel in Griffith Woods. f/8, 1/1000 sec ISO 1000

    Are you sure this is a photo. I thought you might had had Monet along to paint this scene.
    I love this image Henri. Did you do any post processing?

    • Henri says:

      I used the auto exposure feature in Lightroom. I am not so sure about a “great” picture. It looks like a bucket of submerged potatoes to me.

    Nothing like the adventure of capturing rain in the puddle forming on our walkway. Note to self, keep camera dry and don’t drop the camera in the water. Whew – success on that front… I tried using a Tv setting at 1/1000 or faster, F4, but ended up using the Sport Setting on burst. I could not get the monkey tripod low or stable enough, so knees it was. This was taken at 5.6 1/500 with ISO 500.

      Same puddle, different area and the color of the paving bricks showed through. The bubble captured the reflection of the tree and peanut ring above. Not sure what was causing the white film. It was not overly apparent until I loaded the pictures up. Setting was sport burst, F5.6, 1/64 ISO 5000.

    • Henri says:

      A rebound drop and a big bubble. Burst mode really works!

    Mallard Point in Fish Creek Park. Picture taken at 5 sec, f22, ISO400. I had a 10 stop filter on my camera but not the best time of day to slow down water. (I forgot to change the ISO from 400 to 100 from the last time I used my camera.) Edited in LR, denoised in Topaz.

    • Henri says:

      Looks great Paul. I think you got the right balance with some definition in the water flow. Love the composition.

    Rainwater droplets on hops stalk. Taken with 300 mm telephoto lens. ISO 1600, f/7.1, 1/320.

  8. Henri says:

    Water droplets on leaves, Griffith Woods, f/10, 1/800, ISO 1000. Taken with my 200 mm Zoom. Focus stacked from 5 images, cropped and enhanced in Photoshop.

    • Ron says:

      Great example of focus stacking. I like the look of the leaves and water droplets set against the dark background.

    Water drops on berries on my tree. These were taken right after the big storm rolled through during our zoom meeting two weeks ago. Taken with my 18-55 mm lens at f/4, 1/320 sec, ISO 250

  12. Beth says:

    Little waterfall in Reader Rock Gardens. Taken with my 18-55 mm lens at f/5.6, 1/40 sec, ISO 250

    I just stuck around the yard looking for water-type photography I saw this one pot that was having trouble draining so it created its own ecosystem or muskeg in a pot.
    With Olympus on the macro setting, I went in close to the water.

    second of the two.

    I was on the Great Canadian Tours grizzly bear excursion last Saturday and part of the ezcursion was watching the humpback whales. I captured this shot of a pair diving and thought it would match the theme of water. Shot at 1/1250 sec, f9, ISO – 500 and a focal length of 400mm.

    iPhone photography in Carburn Park. Edited in Photos on my iPhone. Perfectly still this morning.

  17. Frankie says:

    I was unhappy with all my puddle reflection shots.
    I was trying to show Dwight the iPhone 12 could operate underwater, so this is my selfie attempt. Next time I’ll be braver and submerge it totally!

    On a recent trip to Alaska, we stopped in Skagway and took a short photo workshop. We went to photograph flowing water at the Lower Reid Falls. I asked the teacher to recommend a setting and he just told me what to do. I have never shot anything in this setting before, so here it is: Shutter Priority, F22, S 0.125, ISO 400, Auto WB, CW Metering, Focal Length 18mm

  19. Karen McDaniel says:

    Same settings. Same water fall at Lower Reid Falls. Different perspective.
