Travel Landscape - Waterways
Photographing lake, rivers, streams or canals offer an
entirely different variety of photographic opportunities from those
found by the sea and in coastal region. The surrounding areas are often
reflected in the surface of the water, adding an extra dimension to the
shot and reproducing what is often the most spectacular scenery twice
The same problems of measuring exposure
encountered when taking seascapes also apply to pictures of large
stretches of fresh or inland water; the exposure metering system may
judge light as being bright than it is because of the light coming from
the expanse of reflective water. As with sea shots, compensation must
be made for this in order to avoid underexposure and ruined pictures.
Take care when choosing a viewpoint for
water photography. Make sure the surface, especially of rivers or
canals, is free of factory effluent, waste products and debris, unless
this is the detail to be highlighted.
