On the Dutch photography website Nederpix quite a few pictures have been posted over the past weeks that have been taken with a long shutter speed. This gives a really nice effect on running streams as you can capture the movement of the water that way. Today I tried to get the same effect for the first time. The major problem was in this case that there wasn’t much movement in the water, which made it hard to capture. As you can see in the above picture, I took the first steps, but more movement in the water and a longer shutter speed (now 2,5 secs) would have been better. At home I realized I should have put the iso value on 100, so I could have used a longer shutter speed.

Gives me at least something to work on 🙂
This is one of the first pictures I’ve taken with live view. This way I could get my camera close to the water, without having to be in the water myself.
