Photographing water presented by Pete Carbonelle past president and webmaster.

The equipment needed depends on how you want to show the water: silky or stop action. It can include a tripod and ND filters. Also a remote camera release and polarizer may be required. Camera settings and equipment depend on if you want to show the water as silky or in action. If you want to stop the action of the water high speeds are required. If you want to show silky water long speeds are required. Pete showed slides of various situations from waterfalls to slow speed situations and what camera settings he used. The faster the water is flowing the higher the camera speed required. It requires trying different camera settings and practice to determine the best settings. For slow moving water an N.D. filter or polarizer may be needed . Also if the shooting is in bright day or at nighttime settings will change.

In the lecture by Joel Sartore he discussed the different kinds of cameras that are available as well as supplemental equipment such as a tripod and cable release. He also talked about aperture,shutter speed and ISO and the relationship of these 3 settings.

The meeting was adjourned at around 8:20
