    These were all done without a tripod, so please ignore the slight blur. I'm new to SLR photography and am looking for some ideas, suggestions, critiques, whatever- This weekend I'll be heading to Bushkill Falls, PA- I'll remember the tripod and my N.D. filters- to take some nice waterfall shots. Here's a link to the place in case you are wondering: www.visitbushkillfalls.com

    And here are my firstt few shots:

    Depends on what you want to do with the waterfall.
    Freeze the water, or get that nice foggy look.

    Either case, I'd drop the ISO down to 100, and shoot from a tripod.

    Fast shutter speed for freeze, or slower for the foggy look.

    Maybe wait till sunset or sunrise, and shoot it then to get some nice light levels.

    I plan on getting there just after sunrise- should be O.K. with lighting. Thanks for the advice!
