Flat Creek

Several weeks ago I was traveling on business in Georgia, specifically about two hours north of Atlanta. As the trip winded down, I found time to explore around a town named Jasper. With little extra time, I turned to Google for good photo spots that ended up leading me to someone’s house—who were not of course wanting a visitor interested in photographing an “alleged” waterfall on their property. Technology—it is awesome but can also make one look the dumbass, as my grandmother would say. No worries, though. About 5 miles away I came upon Flat Creek, a river that stems all the way down from the Appalachian mountains.

    • Thank you, Angie, for stopping by the blog. The effect with the water comes from being able to perform a long exposure, usually of 5+ seconds or more from my experience. You can achieve this by adding filters to your camera to slow down the light pouring onto your sensor or by taking photos in low light conditions with narrow apetures (F16 or greater, usually). For these, I used a combination of both. The photos were taking post-sunset, and I used a neutral density filter on my camera with a narrow aperture. Again, thanks for stopping by, and I hope the previous answers your question.
