Photo blog 3 (photography tricks)

Hey all. I attended a photography class where we used lemons and dropped them in a water tank. The objective of the task was capture the water displacement when the lemons were dropped into the water tank.  This picture was taken in the manual mode with a high shutter speed(1/3200), high ISO and maximum aperture(F2.8). As usual I appreciate your comments that would help me improve.

The next technique is to capture an  image during the day time while it appears to be taken either late in the evening or during night. The trick is to use the white balance setting. the following picture was taken with the WB set to night mode.

The following picture is a macro picture of a butterfly resting beautifully. This was taken a very close proximity with maximum aperture (f2.8) and moderate shutter speed (1/640) and low ISO (200). The important technique with macro photography is to take the camera as close as possible to the subject without disturbing it. Use if a tripod would have helped with the image quality better (could have taken the lens more closer and avoided shake).

Beautiful and informative post.
For the #1, I had an idea to do a close up of a lemon with air bubbles around it. This could be tricky to focus since it would involve camera panning as well.

Thank you for sharing your captures and methods with us.
