I had promised at some point in time that I would share with you some settings that can change your pictures when you take them. Water is always a fun topic to play around with while taking pictures. My camera is a Nikon D5100. I have the option of manually adjusting the settings or allowing the camera to set them.

The top picture was taken in sunlight using the automatic symbol of the man running. It is designed to be used at sporting events in order to capture the athletes in action. Look at how you can see some of the individual drops frozen in time.
1/125 sec. f/5.6 70mm ISO 280
This bottom picture was taken with in sunlight with the flash off. The water stream is a little more blurred. The less natural light using this setting the more blurred the water will appear.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
