Hey guys, I'm new to photography. To get those beautiful cloudy waterfall streaming shots, is it really long shutter speed and small aperture?
Can it be reproduce on a point and shoot, S90?
I've tried yesterday and failed. The smallest aperture on the s90 is f/8.0 and any shots over 1/60 or 1/30 sec @ ISO 80 was over exposed.
Long shutter speeds, yes. I do at least 1/2" up to several seconds depending on how the water is moving. I use a B+W 1.8 (6-stop) ND filter. It darkens so that I can get long shutter speeds in daylight.
For your S90, if f/8 is the smallest aperture possible, you won't be able to achieve a slow shutter conventionally, unless you find some water that is really shaded (like under a heavy tree canopy).
You could try just holding an ND filter in front of the lens, I've actually done that before.
