Week 27: Rim Lighting - Patio Side Fountain

Now this is why I love the Photo Challenge. This indeed was a challenge. While being creative, I also like to keep it simple. This water fountain is in our backyard. To create the picture I moved one of our solar garden lamps and placed it directly behind the fountain. I then turned the flash off on my camera, put it on a tripod, and experimented with a few different angles.


As an added bonus, not only did I capture the flowing water, but I also got some water splashes. If you look closely to the upper left of the fountain there’s even some rim lighting on a cob web coming off the flower planter. That truly was a surprise.


The entire lighting, etc. was all captured “in camera”. The only thing I did in post editing was sharpened the image slightly.
