Great Falls MD: Making Silky Waters With Neutral Density Filters

You’ve seen the photos: waterfalls and rapids made to look like silky clouds spilling over the rocks.

It’s not that hard to do. Professional Photographer Alain Gutierrez can teach you a technique that will come in handy in all your future adventures in nature and landscape photography!

The answer is: a Neutral Density (ND) filter as the perfect tool for creating amazing long exposure images by day or by night.

Check out the pictures above, the first was done as a 4 second exposure, the next one at 10 seconds.

A common scene can turn into a fantastic image when we use ND filters. The Great Falls on the Maryland side are a perfect location for learning how to use the ND filters and take unique photos.

This is a great opportunity to learn and practice the techniques of photography using ND filters, early in the morning. To avoid the crowds and get first light of the day, we will meet at the Lock House on the Maryland side.

Learn how to control your camera, your slow shutter speed timer, and how to capture the scenery. Don’t forget to bring your tripod, it’s essential for this kind of photography. We also recommend that your bring a ND1000 or ND10 filter.

We will start with a 15-20-minute orientation on camera settings.

What to bring:

  • Camera
  • Lenses
  • Extra memory cards
  • Extra charged battery
  • Tripod
  • Accessories including ND filters, remote release
  • Weather appropriate clothing
