Janet’s com­ment

Photo Plus - - The Apprentice -

For this wide wa­ter­fall shot we went for a ver­ti­cal, to in­clude the full height of this pic­turesque scene. Us­ing a wide-an­gle fo­cal length of 24mm, I fo­cused on the most in­ter­est­ing parts of the wa­ter­fall rather than get­ting the whole scene. Shoot­ing from a high van­tage point and aim­ing the cam­era down, I was able to cap­ture the swirls at the bot­tom, where the wa­ter crashes over the rocks, for some in­ter­est­ing shapes. It was dark in­side the for­est so a long ex­po­sure cap­tured the move­ment. We found 0.3 sec was the op­ti­mum shut­ter speed for wa­ter blur, but with rocks still vis­i­ble – any slower and they dis­ap­peared.
