29 Enchanting Photos Of Waterfalls


Photographing waterfalls can be a fun thing for photographers and at the same time quite challenging if you do not get the settings right and use the right equipment. While silky smooth waterfalls photography requires mounting the camera on a tripod, sometimes photographers get away with handholding their camera for 1/2 or 1 second, which is not recommended.

Using a tripod gives sharp images and allows you to flexibly compose the shot. For waterfall photography, stop down the aperture, use a slow shutter speed, low iso value, a tripod, and a neutral density filter for enchanting images.

Here are 29 enchanting images of waterfalls that will inspire you to go out (no matter what the location and size of the waterfall is) and photograph them using the right settings and gear.

If you feel that your photos look uninspiring, and you are missing that excitement when capturing photographs, then we recommend you to check out “The Complete Guide To Long Exposure Photography” by Photzy. You will be creating photographs that will truly surprise you!
