Waterfall — Photo 98 — Project 365

Waterfall — Photo 98 — Project 365

Published Reading Time ~1 min Filed Under Project 365

Still in the National Parks between Banff and Jasper, I found this waterfall. The effect I was going for here was one of fluid motion - by setting a (relatively) long shutter speed (a tenth of a second, in this case), the motion of the water is captured. At the other extreme, with an extremely fast shutter speed, you can freeze a waterfall, making it look almost as if it had turned to ice in an instant.

Project Update

So this is the end of my first batch of ‘Project 365’ photos - 98 photos that have taken over two years to be put up. I realize that is a far cry from the original plan of a photo a day for a year. I can blame part of the backlog on moving five times and the following periods without internet, but regardless, I am through that backlog. Now I can post pictures closer to when I take them and hopefully offer more meaningful commentary. In short, I look forward to posting more pictures here soon!

I love this Will. I tried to take a similar picture of a waterfall and could not figure it out! Now that I know that a tenth of a second is the right shutter speed, I just need to figure out how to change the shutter speed on my camera… : ) I love looking at your photos.

Bridget, see if you camera has a 'Tv' setting (for “Time Value”).

I love how you were able to capture the movement of the water, it really does look like it is still flowing. I think it is just amazing!
