How to Create Amazing Waterfall Photos
Waterfalls have always been one of my favorite parts of the great outdoors. They're perfect at instilling a sense of relaxation while also showing how powerful nature can be - so naturally, they tend to be fantastic subjects for photographs.
I've always loved those smooth, silky looking waterfall photos. When I first started shooting with a DSLR, I wanted every waterfall photo to have that smooth and silky look (long-exposure). However, I've since learned that the long-exposure technique doesn't always lead to an amazing waterfall photo. Sometimes a waterfall looks much more impressive and beautiful when you've used a faster shutter speed.
Every waterfall is different, so here are some things to consider when choosing which style to use as well as some tips on how to achieve both of those styles.
