When Brian first gave us this task, I thought it would be relatively easy to use the technique of Shutter Speed in Tropical World. As I arrived and started to use these settings to try document these different moving creatures, I began to realise that this was a much more challenging task than first thought. The act of trying to capture these animals either mid-flight or mid-motion proved to be a much more testing concept. Starting with taking photographs of the fish, I felt there was only a limited amount of times I could capture their motions as they only have basic visual functions, the birds were much harder to photograph. The birds played around with me as if they were used to being photographed, waited until I had the shot ready and would fly away too quickly and erratically as though my camera were a gun. The same problem arose with the Meerkats. The capturing movement of water was the best thing to work experimentally with as I could adjust my shutter speed accordingly, as it just moved in the same way consistently, some of the water images have proven to be the strongest overall visually as a technique for using Shutter Speed. I would ideally like to revisit Tropical World, if I get the time and be more patient with taking these photographs in order to get better shots using Shutter Speed to improve the quality of my work.
