    I am going to be travelling in a few weeks looking for waterfalls. I was wondering if anyone had any great tips about settings they have used that worked well for them. I realize settings change with lenses, etc. However they all would help.

    Thanks,

    Where you going? I love shooting waterfalls. I go for the moving water look when I shoot them. I close the fstop down as far as it will go, so that I get a nice slow shutter speed. This type of work has to be done on a tripod. If it's real sunny though, a neutral density filter comes in handy. And don't just stick with the wide angle shot, getting in close and isolating little parts of a waterfall can give you some really nice shots. Good luck.

    I went to Mallyan Spout a small waterfall in YOrkshire ....... I used a 100 ASA the first roll.... but I LOVED the results from a roll of Kodak 25 ASA ... So lovely ... you can get some lovely moving water with it or some sharp picture with a fast shutter ... I was so pleased with the results.

    Hope this helps.
