How to create amazing waterfall photographs
When the situation challenges you, just look around. The answer is usually just right in front of you. Here’s what I did:
- Set the camera to a slow shutter speed.
- Put the camera on a stable base (I used the railing)
- Take a few pictures
- Enjoy the results
