The Christman Sanctuary Lower Falls

The trick to flowing water photography involves timing, equipment and technique. Timing in that you want to go out after a good rain when the rocks are wet ( thus dark), in the morning on a cloudy day to avoid sun spatter highlights throughout the scene. Equipment - you want a good prosumer or DSLR camera that allows you to control depth of field and has a large enough sensor ( APS) size or higher to limit noise. To blur the water you need to reduce the shutter speed to longer than 1/15 sec. Tips to do this are: shoot at ISO 100, not higher, choose f16 or f22 for aperture, adjust your meter or histogram to avoid scene underexposure. A tripod and polarizer filter are a must! Jeff
