Photo Challenge 1 of 12: The Splash

Create. Challenge. Educate.

If you know us, you know we’re always trying to grow- as people, in our profession, and in life.  This year we were looking for a fun challenge and decided to complete a photo project each month. We’ve chosen fun challenges that are out of our comfort zone (way different from weddings), to expand our abilities, to grow and to be creative. There’s nothing like a personal project to get creative juices flowing!

We’d love for you to join us, do your own 12 in 12 challenge, or come up with our next photo project! We’ll be sharing ours here each month.

Photo Challenge 1 of 12: The Splash

What we used: a puddle, camera, and lots of different sized rocks *it totally helps if you have a second person too, especially if he can skip rocks

Settings (if you’re interested in trying this project at home): f/2.5; ISO 500; 1/1250 s

Time of day: We picked the golden hour before sunset and used parts of the puddle with tree reflections to make it more interesting. No wind made for better reflections in the still water.

Stay creative. ~Erik & Marissa


I think Erik should be a professional rock skipper.


This is what a skipping rock splash looks like.
