Cypress Reflections Metal Print

Cypress Reflections Metal Print

This is a photograph taken in November 2016. The lighting was incredible. This was my first time at this park and did not realize there were all of these cypress trees growing in this lake. Spectacular!


Cypress Reflections metal print by David Weeks. Bring your artwork to life with the stylish lines and added depth of a metal print. Your image gets printed directly onto a sheet of 1/16" thick aluminum. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4" thick wooden frame which is attached to the back. The high gloss of the aluminum sheet complements the rich colors of any image to produce stunning results.

What is shutterspeed?

October 17th, 2017

Shutterspeed is simply the speed of the shutter measured in 1/n second when you press the button on your DSLR.

Based on the lighting conditions at the time you are photographing, deciding on aperture( meaning long depth of field, or shallow depth of field), subject, ISO will help determine shutterspeed.

As an example:

1.(ISO/1660 f/18 1/1000 sec)   lightbulb http://metalprintdesigns.com/featured/lightbulb-david-weeks.html

2.(ISO/1660 f/29 1/500 sec)     solar2 http://metalprintdesigns.com/featured/solar-2-david-weeks.html

3.(ISO/1660 f/20 1/200 sec)   cypress reflections http://metalprintdesigns.com/featured/cypress-reflections-david-weeks.html


As you will see in example 1, the lighting conditions along with the ISO and aperture(f/18) setting, allowed me to photograph the subject at 1/1000 sec. 

By photographing in a high shutterspeed, it allows for a sharper image. I chose the higher aperture settings for longer depth of field and focus of the shot. The higher ISO brightens up the image which is a more dense image bringing out the detail without the noise because of the higher ISO.

If you photograph in a slower shutter, be sure to use a tripod. Experiment with different shutterspeeds , apertures, and ISO settings.
