THIS WEEK’S 52-WEEK PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE is also going to be the practical subject of our meeting Wednesday 7pm 25 May 2022 at the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH. ALL WELCOME
MAKE A SPLASH – WATER DROPS ACTION!
Take a close up photo of a drop splashing into the water. It’s an old photography project but lots to learn every time you do it. The important thing is to get a regular dripping action so that you can time your shots with more accuracy. You’ll have lots of misses – but when you get a hit, you’ll love it!
The set-up here is something you can do at home by fixing a food bag or similar high up filled with water and putting a small pinprick hole in it. Use a tray full of water to catch your drops. Use your camera on a tripod and manually focus at the point where the splash occurs.
The use of a flash can help capture the action. Put some coloured paper or a bright background behind the tray so that the colour reflects in the water. And time your shots to catch the collision!
Your Challenge: Make a Splash – capture the action!
As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).
And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
