Going to manual camera mode – Day 2

Day 2 was to be about more shutter speed testing using varying light conditions, and trying to shoot moving objects. The bad news, I had to scale back, the last few days have been too sunny with no cloud cover to try different conditions.

The good news, the water fountain I was planing to use was still on. My plan was to take a picture at 1/250 and one with the slowest shutter speed possible to catch the blur of the water. Here are the results:

20140826-130425

105mm (157.5mm FF), ISO 200, F/8, 1/250

20140826-130531

105mm (157.5mm FF), ISO 50, F/36, 1/4

During the shooting at the slowest speed, I caught I passing car in the background, it look rather good, more blur. For comparison I took a reference picture with a car at 1/250. Here is the set with three pics of blurred cars.

20140826-130639

105mm (157.5mm FF), ISO 50, F/36, 1/3

Last but not least for completeness here are two normal pictures of the fountain, one with a passing car, at a wider angle.

60mm (90mm FF), ISO 200, F/8, 1/500

20140826-130914

60mm (90mm FF), ISO 200, F/8, 1/500

My next task will be experimenting with the ISO settings to see the impact on the quality.
