Useful tips for photographing water ripples
Ripples on shallow water surface give abstract, creative and artistic photographs. One can use a bathtub with water or drops falling on a rain puddle for ripples as a subject of photography.

WITH A few simple tips, one can do reasonably good ripple photography. We must be a bit cautious and use camera safely or use a polythene cover since cameras and water don’t mix. Water or dampness entering the camera can spoil the camera.

Either in the puddle or bathtub with water you can create ripples by dripping water from a soaked cloth onto the surface for creative photography. Or else you may make your own device to create ripples on the water surface. Make water ripples of different intensity for experimentation.

For photographing ripples, use off-camera flash placed at an angle to the surface of the water if you are creating ripples in the bath tub in your washroom. Use a smallish aperture, such as f/11, for a large depth of field to ensure a sharp picture.

The high speed of the flash will freeze the motion of the ripple or a high shutter speed for rain puddle will do the trick.
