The photo’s displayed below were taken on two trips that i took to Tropical World and Ilkley. The Tropical World photos were a university assignment which was designed to test our abilities at using slow and fast shutter speeds on our cameras. The trip to Ilkley with Mike was more of just a day out for something to do, however climbing the moors allowed me to capture a wide range of photos using shutter speed, and aperture. With the weather been varied throughout the day, one minute very bright sun the next very dismal, cloudy, and fog rolling in across the moors meant that i constantly had to change the aperture and ISO on the camera to increase the brightness as the weather darkened around me.

The photos from Location 1 were taken at Tropical World and Roundhay Park.

The photos from Location 2 were taken in Ilkley.

The aperture used was f/5.6, even though this is not the widest aperture of the lens the blur in the background and the crisp clarity in the foreground works perfectly. Location 1

The slow shutter speed of 0.8s creates the wispy effect at the base of the waterfall, slowing down the shutter speed allows you to in a word ''pause time''. Location 1

Another use of aperture f/5.0 again not at its widest but still creates that spot of focus in the photo where in this case the foreground and background are out of focus. Location 1

Location 1 Roundhay Park- i used a faster shutter speed than usual for this photo just to capture those drag lines created in the water from the swans movement.
