Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge - Splash!

Weekly Photography Challenge – Splash!

Earlier today I rounded up a bunch of fun images of people and animals making big splashes.

Kids love splashing in mud puddles, that’s a given. But what else makes a splash? Your dog jumping in the tub, an ice cube landing in a glass of water, your kids as they ride their bikes through the wet grass in the morning – all of these seemingly ordinary things could have potential to (pardon the really bad and intentionally pun) make a big splash!

Weekly challenge – capture a splash

If it’s raining, suit up, protect your camera, and get out there to make some splash photos. Need some more ideas? Try these:

Your goal with this challenge is to either find something that splashes, or make your own.

Here are a few tips for you to get started:

  • Use a really fast shutter speed if you want to freeze the droplets in mid air
  • Use a slower speed if you want to show some blur and motion of the droplets
  • If you’re going to attempt to make a splash, do it outdoors – it’s less messy in the house that way
  • Plan extra space around the subject for the splash to expand into
