34/365: February 3, 2015

Today Fat Mum Slim had a fun prompt: {water}.
I had this specific picture in my mind of catching water droplets as it flows out of the tap.
This was the result of the picture – pretty close to what I had imagine in my head.


Some more fun with water today. My brother helped with this picture today. We took about 50 pictures before I was happy with just one. Originally I had him dropping the blueberries into the water but my camera/lens isn’t quick enough to capture that “plunk” into the water. But I think this one turned out pretty well. I just really wanted to capture the movement of the water.

Let me know what you think!

  1. I like them both! The plunk would have been awesome, but you managed to capture a more interesting photo, at least I think, it’s more creative. When I first read “Today fat mum” the first thing that ran through my how can she refer to her mother like that…. I had to read it a couple times haha


    1. Thank you!! It was so hard to pick which one I liked better to post to Instagram. I ended up choosing the second photo.
      Omg. I had to re-read my sentence again bc I thought I made a mistake! Lol.


    1. Thank you so much!
      The settings for the water droplet picture are as follows: f/1.8 ss 1/800 ISO 1600
      I had to shoot wide open and at a high ISO bc of lack of light in the basement and where the faucet is located. I think I could have gotten away with 1/1000 to make it a bit sharper.


      1. I think you got just the right amount of sharpness on the droplets. The way they are, it feels warm and inviting – like the soft drops are going to caress you when you step in the shower. It also has a slightly slow motion feeling that you caught in mid-air. Again, very striking and like this a bunch!


  2. I absolutely love your first photo of the faucet! It is so clean, intentional, just all around awesome! Found you from clickitupanotch, share a common city, and will now follow your 365 journey as I work on mine! Thank you for sharing. You are very talented. 🙂


    1. Thank you!!! 🙂 Good luck on your 365! I will also be following along for support!
      There are a few of us in Toronto maybe I should try and get a meet up going!
      Good luck!


  3. I think my favorite of these two is the first one. It’s so clean! Great job! I believe that a “plunk” photo is created by using a macro lenses isn’t it? We own one, maybe I can give it a try sometime.


    1. Hey Kim,
      Yes a macro lens would be perfect for that. I was hoping I could do it with mine and was worth a shot. 🙂
      Yes please try sometime and share the results. 🙂 I’m interested in seeing it.


    1. Hey Judith!
      I checked yours out! Great job!! I was thinking about using strawberries instead of blueberries.. but I didn’t have any on hand. I will be trying again in summer for sure. 🙂
