Waterfall Photography & ND filters
I take quite a few waterfall/water shots with a slow shutter speed and have invested in an ND filter (ND4) in the hope i can have a slow shutter speed in brighter weather. Advice please on filter choice (i'm happy to but different filters) ,best aperture settings etc for this type of photography....anything really as i'm fairly new to using anything other than auto on camera (Nikon D40X)
Polariser for waterfall photography
A polarising filter will really help as it will also cut out the reflections from the wet rocks, giving you more saturated colours. If you have two, you can use them on top of each other to have a makeshift variable neutral density filter. Be careful with wide-angle lens if you stack filters on top of each other, however. A cotton bag filled with dried beans or similar will serve as a cheap way to keep your camera steady.
