Water overflow (fast shutter)

The overflow pipe at the rear end of Norman Hill reservoir has been chosen for today’s and tomorrow’s blog entries to try and show two contrasting speed effects that can be achieved when shooting moving water. Both pictures have been shot handheld without a tripod on a Canon 30d, with an EF 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens without an image stabiliser. This first picture has been snapped at some of the camera’s faster settings in the hope of ‘freezing’ the tumbling liquid: the camera was set at ISO 400, EV-0.3 and an exposure time of 1/800 seconds, the lens was set at its fastest f/3.5 aperture stop and left wide open at 35mm.
