About the Image(s)

This Windmills photo was taken in Livermore Valley, California. When we drive pass Livermore Valley area we can see lots of Windmills standing on the hills. The Windmill and nature created a beautiful scenery. Shooting the Windmills need a special camera setting. It depends how you like to present the Vanes situation. This depends on the setting shutter speed.I attached couple photos with varied shutter speeds,which showing the Windmill vanes in varied moving situation.On the day time might not able to set a low speed, then we need to add ND filter. The shutter speed set up is depend the vanes revolution speed. Original 1 was taken at 2 seconds. Original 2 was taken at 0.3 seconds, and Original 3 was taken at 1/8 seconds.

Interesting image with the cows and the windmills. I like the colors in the meadow area, and the cows and windmills on a slanting hillside. I had never thought about taking windmill photos at a slow speed. It is very effective. Thank you for sharing with us the different effect at different speeds.   Posted: 10/13/2019 11:39:28
