Photographing Waterfalls With The Tamron 70-200 - Here are a few top tips for shooting waterfalls with the Tamron 70-200mm lens.
Autumn is a great time of year to head out into the woods and find your local waterfall or river. The colours of the leaves will really add something to your shot. Here are some top tips for shooting with the Tamron 70-200mm lens.
Reach - The wide range of zoom on the Tamron 70-200mm means that you'll be able to zoom in and isolate the waterfall without getting too close. It also means that you can zoom out and get the wider shot too, if you want to include more of the vibrant autumn scenery in your shot.
Waterproof - The Tamron 70-200mm is weather sealed, meaning that you don't need to worry too much about getting the lens a little splashed. If it looks like heavy rain though, you may want to consider investing in a camera and lens jacket to keep equipment dry.
Point of View - The versatility of the Tamron 70-200mm means that you will be able to explore lots of possibilities for the angle of your shot. Think out of the box - everyone will go for the foot of the falls shot, looking up the waterfall. Consider taking a step back from the normal viewpoint and including some foreground interest.
Splash Proof - The Tamron 70-200mm comes with a deep lens hood, which is ideal for stopping spray and water droplets from hitting the lens and ruining the shot. The extra reach of the lens also allows you to shoot from quite far back so you aren't exposed to so much spray.
