Water Still Life…

by on Jul.14, 2010, under Life, Photography

I really wasn’t happy with the shot of the water fountain in front of St Mary’s Cathedral that I took the other day (see next blog entry) so took my camera gear to work yesterday and during lunch I though I’d see if I could do a better job. The light wasn’t particularly good (it was extremely overcast and very dull – and then it started to rain) which made it more difficult to achieve the very high shutter speed I wanted to use to freeze the water (I shot in Manual mode and used ISO to compensate for exposure). However I think these shots better represent the vision I had in my head when I took the first…

I took these with my Nikon D90 and Tamron 90mm f/2.8 lens on Manfrotto tripod.

First a colour view towards the cathedral itself:

1/2000 sec at f/2.8, ISO 560, 90mm

and then one looking away (towards the Museum) which I’ve applied the antique black and white processing to:

1/4000 sec at f/2.8, ISO 1100, 90mm
