Waterfall Photography Tips

Waterfalls are best photographed with a long shutter speed setting. Slow shutter speeds will transform the falling water into a beautiful silky carpet of water; actually translating the flow and energy within a 2-dimensional picture. Good shutter speeds for Silky Water Effects and particular for waterfalls are 1/2 to 1/15 of a second.

Experiment with your camera exposure settings like aperture, exposure times, ISO settings for optimal effects. Neutral density filter or polarizing filter extends exposure times and have other beneficial effects on your final Waterfall Photography Images.

Good light and happy photo making! Juergen
