Breathtaking River Photography
Photographing rivers with rapids and fast flowing water can create some the most breathtaking photographs you will ever take! When shooting a river it is best not to use a fast shutter speed as this will freeze the flowing water and not depict the river in the way you experienced it! So, try a slow shutter speed of 1/3 seconds or longer, make sure to use a small Aperture (large F number) to make sure everything is in focus and to avoid over exposing – if there is still too much light entering your camera, try placing a ND Filter (Neutral Density) or Polariser in front of your lens!
