Fluffytufts is taking part in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge! I’m a bit behind on these challenges, so this week I am going to look at the water challenge!
One of the first photos I took as a photography student was the outside tap in the back garden. I experimented with different shutter speeds – with a fast speed you could capture each drop of water in the flow, but if you used a slow speed, the water gained the appearance of silk pouring from the tap.
I was delighted with one of the photos I captured that day. I processed the film myself in an old-fashioned dark room. Then, I printed the image and watched it magically appear as I soaked the paper in developing fluid. I still have this photograph and when I look at it, it invokes memories of my carefree student days, the smells of the chemicals in the dark room, the pride I felt when my image appeared.
Unfortunately, I do not have access to a scanner, so am unable to share it with you. However, here are some water images from more recent times!
