Photography 101: Water

For day three, we want to see your interpretation of water — how might your image reveal more about you?

A source of life. A place of recreation. A calming presence, but also a destructive force.

We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might also symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.

I always take photos of the ocean since I love hanging out at the beach, so for this assignment, I decided to do something that I’ve tried a few times but can never quite get it right. I’ve always wanted a decent photo of water droplets and admired those who are able to produce great images of it. So after 30 minutes of trying and 65 images later here are my 3 favorite shots. I think this time I got exactly what I’ve always wanted and more.  🙂

Patience and persistence always pays off!

Now I can cross this off my bucket list! 😀

“Everything we do, even the slightest thing we do, can have a ripple effect and repercussions that emanate. If you throw a pebble into the water on one side of the ocean, it can create a tidal wave on the other side.”     

– Victor Webster

“When you drop any new idea in the pond of the world, you get a ripple effect. You have to be aware that you will be creating a cascade of change.”     

– Joel A. Barker

“I alone cannot change the world,but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”    

– Mother Teresa
