Blurring water (slow shutter) -- I did it!!
1

This is soooo cool! I did it! 

I finally figured out how to properly blur a water fountain, etc... I quickly went over to Deep Run Park (public park, not even 10 minutes away) before it starts raining again with the gloomy looking skies overhead.  I brought along my tripod too...

I set my Nikon D3500 to Shutter Priority and went all the way down to 1/8 shutter. I didn't DARE touch the camera, so I used SnapBridge by Nikon, and used the remote control function, and took these two photos by remote.

First photo: 18-55mm small zoom, zoomed to 55mm, f/16, 1/8 shutter, and ISO 100.

Second photo: 35mm prime lens, f/11, 1/10 shutter (I must have bumped it accidently off 1/8 to 1/10), and ISO 100.
