Behind The Lens

Location
Cascades above Bond Falls, Ontonagon County, MI - This is probably the most scenic waterfall we have visited on our Great Lakes trip. The actual falls is about 50 ft. but was in the sun, and I could not get a real good photo. The cascades above the falls were in more shade, and I got a better photo. Linda and I enjoyed this waterfall and suggest Bond Falls whenever you are in the MI UP.
Time
This was take around 5:30 PM on a very sunny day. We were lucky to have shade on this part of the waterfall.
Lighting
It would probably been better on a cloudy day.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D90 with a 18-200 mm Nikon lens. The photo was taken at 20mm, f22, 100 ISO, and .5 sec. I had a polarizing filter on and used a tripod.
Inspiration
I liked the way the water was moving in different directions.
Editing
Very little post-processing, if any... I really can't remember.
In my camera bag
I usually travel with a light bag, with three lens, a 10-20 wide-angle, a 80-300 telephoto, and my go to 18-200 Nikon. I take a tripod, and a remote shutter release.
Feedback
I have found that all moving water shots should be with a tripod. I usually set the exposure for whatever it takes for .5 to 1 sec shutter speed. for times with very little water, I increase the time up 20 sec. I try not to use a neutral density filter, but sometimes I have to.
