Frozen Time

Frozen Time

The recent WordPress Photo Challenge is about time. It’s some time ago when I told my mother how to fill up a glass with Coca Cola, not only because I was thirsty, but also because I wanted to try to freeze the time with my camera, or in other words, I wanted to find out how fast my D7100 camera is. At that time I was a complete newbie to DSLR photography, and I took the photo in the program mode but the result is just fine. At that time I didn’t discover the shutter priority mode, or the manual mode of my camera, nor did I know what kind of shutter speeds my camera could achieve. Anyway, the result is still good, the camera froze the time, and I think the image would fit to the recent photo challenge.

  1. What a great idea to use — it certainly captures time. It’s so freeing when one starts to learn to photograph in manual mode isn’t it.

    1. Absolutely. At first I was afraid about manual mode and stuff, but it really didn’t take a lot of time until I noticed how useful it would be if I could set everything on my own, of course I had to learn more photography theory first. Anyway, I still like aperture mode, and shutter speed mode when I am outside hunting random subjects and when I have no time to make decisions… I use manual for static stuff, or when I am absolutely sure what kind of shots I will take outside and if I know how the conditions are, like birds and so. I am glad you like my idea, the photo was shot some time ago, but I thought I could use it for this challenge. I should do more photos with liquids, now that I am more experienced.

  2. Yes, when I said manual mode, I was more thinking along the lines of aperture or shutter mode. I’m not that good to be shooting totally manual. Time will tell. πŸ™‚

    1. I assumed that πŸ™‚ Yes, time will tell… I think the more we try, the faster we might be able to set up all settings manually in the future. Although it’s in most cases not even necessary, because well, aperture and shutter mode work just that well in so many situations πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks a lot Laura, this is rather an experimental shot, something we talked about, just to see how it turns out… but I am glad you like it πŸ™‚ In this case for example I was interested to see if I could freeze the motion, and I like how the bubbles and the head of the Cola look like. I like to observe how daily stuff looks like if you freeze it in a picture. πŸ™‚ The photo is quite old, I’d like to experiment with liquids again some day because I know more about my cameras manual settings now and about shutter speeds.
