High Shutter Speed | Assignment week 8

Posted in: Uncategorized

This week we had to set our shutter speed up to 1500ths of a second or faster to try to capture something in motion. I wasn’t really sure what to take photos of since I’m not going to a sporting event, and last week I did a dance photo so I didn’t want to do that again. Then today it started to rain really hard. I noticed the drops hitting the birdbath were making little splashes. So I grabbed my camera – and an umbrella – and tried to catch one in action. It was really tough because I had to set my camera f stop on 2.8 to get enough light for a fast shutter, which means that the raindrop had to land in about a space of less than 1 inch to be infocus. I got lucky on my third shot:
