#instacamp prompt, week 3: water!

Transient

Hard to believe that we're officially halfway through #instacamp already, isn't it?  And as usual, you guys are killing it with the camera phone photos, and I can't wait to see what you do with the second half of our little virtual adventure.  And so this week, we're going to use a word as our prompt that tends to be everywhere this season: 

water!

It's sort of amazing how often water features in summer months:  we drink it to cool off from the heat, we swim in it, we run through sprinklers, we visit vast bodies of it.  We even get caught in sudden summer showers.  In my world, there's almost as much water-worshipping as there is sun-worshipping.  And so this week, let's give water its props -- grab images of water in as many forms as you can.

And before you go, here are a couple of things to think about:

1.  Do some brainstorming.  It's very easy to think of a local pool or lake, grab your camera phone and be done with this prompt, and that would be perfect; however, also consider all the forms that water can come in:  it can rush, pour, be very still, fall in droplets, pool, puddle, form as condensation, form as dew drops, form as steam.  Consider all the different forms of water before you set out for the day, and then keep an eye out for interesting ways to capture it!

2.  Remember:  where there's water, there's light.  One of the most amazing things about whater is what it can do to light -- it reflects.  It refracts.  It makes sparkles.  It can even make rainbows.  So another way you can make your water shots interesting is to instead focus on what the light is doing around it, and see if you can capture that.

And with that, my friends, I send you on your way.  I can't wait to see what interesting forms your water shots take!
