EXPERT INSIGHT GET IN A SPIN
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.
