Waterfalls are best photographed with long shutter speed settings. Slow shutter speeds transform the falling water into a beautiful silky carpet of water; actually conveying the flow and energy within a 2-dimensional picture. Good exposure times 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 photo effects on your final Waterfall Photography Images.
