2013 Challenge, Week 30: WATER

Last week we shot fire, so this week we shoot the opposite: Water.

Water is a very versatile part of a composition. It is a good reflector, especially if you can find a calm pond or puddle. This also makes it pair nicely with a sunset.

Moving water, such as a river, ocean waves, or waterfall, is a good choice for long exposure photography. A longer exposure will soften the flowing water, making it look like something from a dream.

Water also lends itself to macro photography. Water droplets on a flower are always interesting. And a small drop of water can act like a lens, focusing things that are behind it.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
