Creative ways to balance the light in photography.

Balancing the light in photography is so important. It’s what photography is all about! Here are three creative ways that I balanced the light.

This first picture was taken using a spray bottle, a continuous light, and a flash. By using this equipment and the settings on my camera, I was able to capture a really cool water effect in my photo.

This next image was simply taken with a fast shutter speed, a spoon, a strawberry, and some sugar. A fast shutter speed allows you to freeze motion in your photograph.

These next few images of water droplets were quite a challenge to take. See Caryn Esplin’s tip for catching the stages of a water droplet to see how I did it! Here are a few of the different stages I was able to capture.
