    • Kinda cool, eh?!
      Subject has to be backlit…shutter speed should be 1/60s, (this was shot at 1/80s) set aperture until a correct exposure is indicated, then shoot away! Did this with a watering can on my deck…can’t wait to try it with a sprinkler, green backdrop, and bunches of colorful subjects. 🙂

  2. One of Mr. Peterson’s favorite subjects. You got it nailed. Now, when it rains this Spring, don’t forget to grab your camera.

  3. Yes, Scott! Apparently Bryan cornered the market with this. When he first told us that was one of our assignments for the week, I could’ve cried! However, I refused to be one of those “it’s-cold-and-snowy-so-I-can’t-possibly-do-this-assignment” whiners, (we have a couple of those in the class) so I got out my strawberries, put my coat on, went out on my snow covered deck with my watering can and shot away. First time I’ve ever used the timer on my camera. I have got to get myself one of those remotes! I cannot WAIT to try this more come spring!

  4. So cool!! I have some tulips that I want to try this with, but don’t know if that attachment for the watering can is still around somewhere. Might have to attach the garden hose…
