Photographing the water with the silk effect technique

People who practice the world of photography will almost always have seen photographs of streams, waterfalls, seas or lakes. Today we will gain details about how to photograph drinking water, to make our photography more appealing both as a primary person and as a background. Sketches, glare, movement are elements that always give that touch of creative imagination and beauty.


Photographing The Water With The Silk Effect Technique

You will find different techniques and different ways to photograph drinking water, in this section we will see the most used silk effect. Right now there is talk of quite long times that allow to create that wake up of water not apreciable to the human attention.

Silk Effect Technique: Tips

Let's begin by talking about the ISO and beginning the diaphragm and then moving on to secrecy.


Pertaining to the ISO we should make use of it low in order to decrease the noises, while for the écaillage we will try to set a value from f / 16 - f / 22 up. If instead we want to have water as the key subject with a blurred background, we only need to lower the f, then have a rather larger aperture.


The secret that you have already read about is in the exposure time, that ought to be very long above 1 regulated by 2 factors:

The velocity of the water.

And what you would want to get.
Producing a quick calculation, the slower the water moving, the longer the direct exposure time will have to be long. If then we make the publicity time wrong, the image will not be smooth water but without a few details since it will not have time to take those wake of the water.

As you may could already understand you must put in manual function and as I always recommend manual focus, so you can adapt yourself, then will serve one particular thing that for a beginner photographer who would like to become a professional will never miss.

The tripod, we will usually need to do this kind of picture, because with my hands it appears almost impossible to do this kind of photo.
Last Council and Conclude
The last part of advice I would like to give you is how to adapt or reduce the light, there are 3 ways.

The cheaper is to photograph these varieties of photographs during sun or sunrise or if it is cloudy so that the light will be much less, and you will find the parameters on the SLR CAMERA much more easily. Or perhaps photographing in places in the shade or at night using exposures over 20?.
The second and third method requires the purchase of 2 tools that can always be useful, take a look at buy them. The ND filter (Neutral Density), which on such basis as transparency on the filter can be photographed even if there are areas or days in bright light.
