Waterfalls are flowing in Southern Colorado

I enjoyed a day of scouting waterfalls for our upcoming Waterfalls Photography workshops. Some subjects are perfect for digital cameras.  The fact that we have LCD instant review (chimping) lets us explore a variety of shutter speeds and aperture combinations until we’re happy with the photo.  In the past, when making images on film, I’d have to wait until the film was processed to see if I selected the correct exposure.

Suggested workflow for Waterfall Photography:

  1. Hand hold your camera, walk around the subject, compose roughly and test a variety of shutter speeds.  I call this “sketching”.
  2. Once seduced by a final composition, Set up your tripod and review your composition
  3. Use mirror lockup and a cable release to create the sharpest image without any camera shake.
