Nigel says… Wa­ter­falls of­ten fea­ture ed­dies, caused by the wa­ter that’s tum­bled over the falls cir­cu­lat­ing back to­wards them in a cir­cu­lar mo­tion. If there’s enough white wa­ter to make these cir­cu­lar cur­rents vis­i­ble, it’s worth ex­per­i­ment­ing with the length of the exposure to try to cap­ture them – as Enid has done to great ef­fect with her Shot of the Day (be­low and fac­ing page). The key is to en­sure the cir­cu­lar swirls are kept within the frame, oth­er­wise they’ll lead the eye to­wards the edges of the frame rather than to­wards the sub­ject. It’s also im­por­tant to en­sure the longer exposure doesn’t turn the waterfall it­self into a fea­ture­less sheet of white.
