Photographing Waterfalls without a Tripod
Gearing up for Photographing Landscapes on May 16, here are some TIPS: slow shutter speed makes water even more beautiful, but I didn’t have a tripod with me. Here are tricks I use when I want to shoot a slow speed without a tripod (confession – I rarely if ever use a tripod, except for fireworks):
- use continuous high speed motor drive
- support camera on left wrist bone
- keep left elbow tight against your ribs
- hold my breath & shoot a TON of photos
- 100 ISO & stop down to f22 in A mode (AV mode for Canon)
- add a circular polarizer filter if you have one – darker plus you have control over reflections
- go home & pick the sharpest shot – zoom in to 100% of the image in your favorite editing program. I used Lightroom for these.
- Gear used: Nikon D600 camera, 70-300mm ED lens, 18-35mm lens. Check my flickr feed for more.
