Ripples and Reflections
While leading my West Virginia Workshop I made this image of autumn reflections and ripples in a small pond in Canaan Valley. It was an absolutely still morning and the glass like mirror reflections where are focus. I wanted to demonstrate to the group how to make an image a little outside of the box by the simple act of tossing a rock in the water. The light was not striking the surface of the water, yet the trees on the opposite bank where brilliantly lit by early morning sunlight. By bumping my ISO up to 200 and opening up my aperture to only f11, I was able to get enough DOF but at the same time have a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the movement of the ripples undulating across the surface of the pond! I would love to hear what you think about this image, so please drop in a leave me a comment.
