Hey speedy, slow it down!

In our busy "hurry-up and get it done" world, there is no question that we short-change ourselves on so many things; especially our relationships and an appreciation for the beauty around us.

That's where photography can help tip the scales in the other direction! The image below is only possible at slow, slow speed.

By using very slow shutter speeds, from 30-60 seconds, I was able to create this dreamy effect. At these slow speeds water looks more like a mist! See the full image below... just a simple fountain.

Be creative. The next time you take pictures of a fountain or waterfalls, get your tripod out and start experimenting with slow shutter speeds.

Have fun with it.
