My Raindrop Photo

For Christmas, I was given a Canon Rebel T1i DSLR.  It takes great pictures of course!  There are so many automatic modes that if I were to use those only then I end up with a very expensive point and click camera.  I’m learning the creative modes on adjusting the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, etc. 

It was pouring rain the other day so I thought it would be an opportunity for me to test the movement of water and how I can make it silky but also how I can capture the clarity of the rain as it dropped in the puddle of water that was made by the rain.  After a lot of shots, I only found one that I thought was good enough.  This wasn’t filmed in a studio so you can see the water itself has brown grass underneath.  Anyway, I just wanted to post this on my blog as I am well pleased with it!

I’ll appreciate any feedback/suggestions on the photo.  I can take constructive criticism well.  Also, if you want to comment with some photography tips, I welcome those too!

One thought on “My Raindrop Photo

  1. Excellent clarity! You captured the raindrop at just about the perfect time! I have also been branching out into more of the manual settings on my Nikon (I got it in September of this year) – if you’ve got them, might as well use them! I also started experimenting with shooting in RAW format. I didn’t see the purpose before, but a BIG reason for me to switch over (especially if I’m going to consider selling any more prints) is the wonderful ability to correct the white balance in post-processing! My latest post is a photo that I just shot in RAW, and white balance adjustment is all I did to it.
