Waterfalls are one of the most popular subjects for landscape photographers, as they offer the chance to create dramatic images that capture the viewer’s imagination. If you are interested in improving your waterfall photos, this great video will give you 10 helpful tips to get you on your way.
Coming to you from Photo Tom, this helpful video will give you 10 tips for taking better waterfall photos. One tip I particularly appreciated was getting lower when shooting small waterfalls. I personally love them, but here in Ohio, we do not really have any spectacularly big waterfalls; in fact, most of them around around two to five feet tall, occasionally a little higher. I learned to grab a wide angle lens and get low and close to give them a more dramatic perspective. In fact, this often meant treading into waist-deep water with my tripod (obviously, be very careful doing this and take all appropriate safety precautions for you and your equipment), but it was well worth the hassle. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips.
