My 365: Water Water Everywhere

It’s fun to take pictures of water in the summertime!  🙂

To get that soft, foamy effect, use the slowest shutter speed possible (at least a couple of seconds).  To do this, you may need to wait until dark (or be in a shadowy forest, or have a neutral density filter on your lens).  Stop down your aperture as much as you can … I think I used f/22.  Also, I didn’t have a tripod, so I perched my camera on a rock and used the built-in timer instead of my remote.

It’s important to have something perfectly still in the shot, to give it an anchor, so to speak.  Rocks are good for this purpose!
