Fountain Fever – Night Photo by Kate Silvia in PPSOP Class

Every so often, I like to feature the work of a participant in the online night photography class that Donna Eaton and I teach for the Perfect Picture School of Photography. In this month’s class, Kate Silvia, from Charleston, South Carolina, submitted and assignment photo that that I would be thrilled to call my own.

Night photo of fountain in Charleston

Photo by Kate Silvia. Nikon D600, Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, f/14, 2 seconds, ISO 400.

I’ll let Kate describe it in her own words.
“I’ve seen many great images of this popular fountain in Charleston along Waterfront Park.  In working on this first assignment for our Night Photography class, I wanted to find something that conveyed movement. I shot this fountain from several angles, even some vertical ones isolating the streams of water against the church steeple in the background. The “straight on” shot, which included the entire fountain, was a lovely shot naturally but I wanted to do something different. I got very close to the fountain, down on the steps surrounding it and shot upward with a fairly wide-angle lens. This puts the viewer in the position of being somewhat under the water spouts, which was the effect I was looking for.”
