Low Speed Shot Tips.

From My Nikon D800

After taken about 50 low speed shots at couple of small rivers in Samigaluh village, Kulonprogo area. I’ve learned some of personal tips how to perform low speed to create “silky water” effect at the rocky river.

  • Setting camera: I would to set my camera as “Shutter Priority” which may apply for 1 – 4 sec exposure which is the best speed could create nice & beatiful “silky water” effect. You may also set your camera in “Manual” mode then set ISO sensivity setting to “ON”. Shot with range of speed 1 – 4 sec and aperture between f/5.6 – f/16. Your ISO set will automatic set to appropriate your current lighting.
