Nadia says:

“We just moved into a new house with a big forest garden and  automatic sprinklers, so we decided to take advantage of our new surroundings and have some fun!”

Nadia’s Photography Tip:

My garden is exposed to the South, so I had my kids stand with their back to the light and had the sprinklers come in from camera left.

At first I had the sprinkler setting too high, and the water obscured their faces. But all I had to do was turn down the intensity of the sprinkler spray a little bit and the water droplet size was perfect.

We used two umbrellas to catch the water from the sprinklers, and I use a long shutter speed to stop the movement of the water.

For the editing, I just use a lot of clarity to really outline the droplets of water.

Nadia used a Nikon D4 with a Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G lens to capture these images.

Nadia’s black and white images are really lovely, but to really get a solid black and white image, remember that you have to edit them differently than you do your color images.

  1. Love this!!

    I think there’s a typo here: “We used two umbrellas to catch the water from the sprinklers, and I use a long shutter speed to stop the movement of the water.”

    I believe it should say a SHORT shutter speed to stop the movement, otherwise the droplets would become lines instead of more circular drops! 😉
