Theme: Water frozen in time.

Due Date: Thursday January 31st 2008

Please post current photos. Anyone can participate.


The goal of this assignment is simple fast shutter speed to freeze the motion of water to give it that frozen look.

It works if you use flash in a dark room.

Nothing really creative about it... just a water drop.

I do see a vodka bottle though, upside down and on the other end of the table :)

I pulled the same thing but put my camera on auto so I could see if it was possible with a point+shoot

What I found out on this Assignment.
My Camera (D40X) will only go to 200 in flash mode.
it is better to use a lighter background

The feature I think I like the best about the D40 (not X) is that excellent 1/500th flash sync. I wish they had put the FP mode on the D40X since they lowered the flash sync, giving you that to make up for the relatively slow sync speed.
