20160426: Water in motion, shutter speeds.

Here I have 3 simple shots to demonstrate how changing the shutter speed and yes, either a neutral density filter of changing the f/stop setting will also be necessary.

 

first shot ISO 100, 29mm, f/9.0 1/200sec shutter. stop action on the water, splashes are clear drops.

2nd shot, ISO 100, 31mm, f/18 1/40sec shutter. The water shows motion but it is not smooth individual drops are blurry but present.

3 shot, ISO 100, 30mm f/22 1/10 sec. smoothing out if the flows, all the individual drops blend.

Next shots show why you want more than one shot taken when you do this.
ISO100,  20mm f/22 1/5sec.

ISO100, 20mm f/22 1/5sec.

ISO100, 20mm f/22 0.3sec.

Too each their own, but if you stop and look at the photos compare the bottom water flows, some are more interesting than others.
