What Water Trick?

It’s been blissfully quiet lately but all good things must come to an end. MckMama’s post last night (the second one, not the deleted one) contains plenty of words but that’s about it. She throws out more hints, once again stringing along her readers:

As I alluded to earlier, some things are going to be changing for our family soon, while the most important things about us stay the same. Dreams, goals, visions, hopes, family, life, love. It’s exciting.


I promise I really will share with you my water photography trick, pick winners for the Name That Photo posts I’ve had but never wrapped up and tell you about our family’s changes. Soon.

Since I have a BFA in photography (no, really) I’d like to go ahead and let everyone know that there is no water photography trick, it’s simply an issue of shutter speed. If your shutter speed is too low it will not stop motion; you will get blur. Just increase your shutter speed and you will stop motion. It’s simple. Many digital cameras have modes—like sports mode—that are preset for this very “trick.” There are other details to consider based on your available light, but today’s digital cameras make it easy to get the results you’re looking for.

If all else fails? Google is your friend.

In the meantime the floor is open for continuing current discussions, starting new ones and enjoying the community we’ve created here.



Visitors: welcome! Feel free to look around and ask any questions you might have. There are a number of links on the sidebar to the right if you feel like browsing, or just jump into the conversations in the comments section of the posts; here’s the opportunity for you to de-lurk! I think you’ll find that everyone here is very welcoming and there’s plenty of witty humor and sarcasm to go around.
