Bad Little Falls

Bad Little Falls 02

I ordered from B&H Photo a 0.9 Neutral Density filter, just for taking photos of waterfalls. In Machias is Bad Little Falls, luckily for me, there was plenty of water flowing through them. I set the tripod up, with the filter and used my remote to snap photos.

I had the camera settings at ISO100 / f18 / 1.6s.

    Gorgeous. I took some photos of a stream not too long ago and was playing around with several different settings – I’ll have to post those soon.

    Oh, and I definitely need to pick up more lenses and filters. Priorities, unfortunately, have been elsewhere lately.

    Thanks for the compliments. Definitely post your photos of the stream I’d love to see them. I’ve been trying to capture this photo since 2001. That’s when I got my first digital camera and it’s been, when time was available, research and trying it out. It wasn’t until I learned about the neutral density filter that the light bulb went off. It really does help with getting that silky water effect during times that aren’t dawn and dusk.

    I hear yah on needing more lenses and filters. The filters weren’t too bad, 15.00 range, but lenses, ugh, there’s several I want, but we’re also trying to save for a house.

    Thanks for stopping by 🙂
