Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid


Backlit Fountain Street Photography

Liquid” is the theme of the WPC Weekly Photo Challenge this week. So let it be wet! My title photo is a street photo from downtown Nuremberg.  The image was taken with my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4-5.6. Image specs 1/250 sec @ f/5.6 and ISO 320. Have I mentioned before I am a big fan of shooting into the light? You just have to make sure you measure for the correct exposure, as back-lit images tend to be too dark, as the camera “sees” too much light, especially with matrix exposure metering. In these situations it is best to switch on center weighted or even spot metering and put your metering point(s) over the area you want to have correctly exposed. In this case I exposed for the hair of the girl, which had a great midtone contrast.

For a small collection of more liquid street-, landscape- and travel-photos I invite you to look after the jump….

I’m making progress on defining my mitigation measures to make this blog GDPR compliant. There were a lot of helpful comments on my last post about the topic, worth reading, if you haven’t already. Stay tuned for an update.

Have a good Friday!

  1. Hey, I love this series. I have always struggles to capture the beauty of moving water. Your light and contrast on the waterfall is perfect to display the incredible motion in one photograph.
