Hello,

Summer is here and so is the time to have fun with water. So here is a tutorial to have fun and capture cool photos.

In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to do High Shutter Speed Photography with your phone. High Shutter Speed Photography captures moving objects without the motion blur like water drops and sports photography.

There are two ways to do High Speed Photography:
  • Fast Shutter Speed.
  • Flash Duration: Shot with a flash. The flash duration as fast as <1/2000 second. Will eliminate it as mobile flashes are not capable of doing this.


High shutter speed photography needs good lighting conditions. If you try it in low light, it’ll not work. It needs to be done on a bright sunny day.

I’m using a Mi Max and on my Mi Max, when I go on manual mode the max shutter speed available is 1/1000. But why not go above it if possible? Lets switch to Auto Mode. What auto mode does is, it’ll try to expose properly by boosting the shutter speed.

I will be dropping a lemon slice in a wine glass filled with water and capture it the moment it hits the water and create splash.

What you need:
  • Mobile (I used Mi Max)
  • Tripod
  • Lemon / or other fruit slice
  • Wine or any other transparent glass
  • Water

Lets get the camera settings:
  • Auto Mode: Put your camera on auto mode.
  • Burst Mode: You need to shoot this in burst mode.

Mount your phone on the tripod. Setup your glass, fill the water till top. Leaving glass half empty will give you smaller splash and the water splash will remain in the glass.

Before starting the burst shoot, take a test shot.
Check the focus: Your focus should be on the glass. If your mobile has focussed the background, please tap your phone screen where you want it to focus.

Check the details: Check the shutter speed. It needs to be over 1/2000.

If both are right, go ahead. Press and hold the “click” button to enter “Burst Mode” and start clicking photos. Drop the lemon. Release the camera button once the splash is over and water settles back in the glass. Fill up the glass when required.

It needs a lot of patience. You’ll need to do a lot of shots to get some perfect ones. I took around 1200 shots.

Here are the shots that I managed to get:

Use in auto mode. Remember the light has to be good. Check details of your first test shot, the shutter speed or exposure time should be over 1/2000.
