Today we went to a city park. A park that happens to be a water playground. A great concept and for a buck a piece the kids can go get wet and not make mud holes in my yard. Or violate any watering restrictions. And it seems we've always got watering restrictions here.
Shooting at a place like this is interesting. There's very little shade and we're often there when the sun is high. Lots of overexposed backgrounds and under exposed kiddos.
And then there is the water. You can't get too close, for obvious reasons. So you need some decent reach. Make sure you use a fast enough shutter speed to not only overcome the camera shake from the long focal length, but to stop the water. If you want to stop the water.
But really, if everyone is having fun does it matter if the water looks like someone sneezed all over your lens?
By the way... if you want to see any of the images a bit larger, just click on them. :)
