This month we had some great stuff, from a shutter speed and temperature point of view. All DLSRs can achieve shutter speeds of 1/4000th or even more, which can stop droplets etc. (Have to say though, if you really like droplets you may want to seek out a camera that can do 1/8000th – even an ancient Nikon D70 can do this). If you underexpose on droplets a bit you can speed up the shutter even more, and the darkness can make the droplets pop out even more.
Picture(s) of the month is Rob’s set of three beach shots – look at the attention to detail here – the way the shadows are so strong in the sunny pictures and weaker in the rainy ones. As usual with Rob’s tiny worlds, it’s beautifully done.
