Shutter Speed: fast or slow?

Fire is extinct with water and water vanishes at high temperature.
You can imagine shooting fire and water in a similar relationship: faster shutter speed for fire and slower shutter speed for water will give different results than slower shutter speed for fire and faster shutter speed for water. Both fire and water are elements that move, so these following examples can serve to further ideas about moving objects.
Fire sparkleWaterfall
With fast shutter speed for fire you will capture one instance of the burning flame (just hit the burning woods before you shoot and get a magical sparkle). Slower shutter speed on water will create a smooth silky surface used usually on waterfalls, rivers and the see.
FirewheelWater Droplet
Slow speed over fire is rarely used as slow speed over light: it creates burning shapes of fire light. Fast speed used with water pictures will give the well-known droplet effect. You can also consider dropping objects in water to obtain creative shoots.

Some realy good images of water droplets.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
