I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

What a Fast Shutter Speed Will Do For Water

Although generally I prefer a slower shutter speed for water, as I mentioned in a previous post, a fast shutter speed can be fun too. This is the fastest shutter speed my camera possesses: 1/4000 of a second. Many newer or more expensive cameras can go faster. But I enjoy how this turns the stream of water into droplets rushing to the bottom, as opposed to the smooth silk I showed you last time.


  1. I like the fast shutter speed for this water shot...it is not silky smooth like all of the water shots you usually see...I love each and every drop!

  2. When I saw your photo I formulated my comment in my mind before scrolling down to see your caption. You took the words right out of my mouth (Eww, careful with those fingernails). It's sometimes nice when you can get enough light to get down to 1/4000 sec. Nice work.

  3. Yep, that makes a splash! Great image.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
