  • Beautiful!! Hey, and this reminded me of a question I have that I keep forgetting to ask. I've attempted to take pictures of flowing water before, but have a hard time blurring the motion without extreme overexposure. I can never get my shutter speed slow enough to prevent this. Any tips?? Thanks!

  • Thanks for the comments, everyone.

    You have to shut your aperture as tight as it will go, lower your ISO to the lowest setting, and then stand back from your subject, and zoom to full telephoto. (the farther you zoom, the more light your lens eats up.) Also, it helps to be in a fairly dark environment. This was fast-moving water, which helped, but early morning, evening, or in a dense woods gives the best results. I have yet to get a picture of silky water that I would deem "professional" – So maybe I'm not the one to ask! :)
