Exposure mode Manual

Aperture f/11–f/16

Shutter speed 1/30 sec or slower

ISO 100


  • Use the settings above as a rough guide. If the image is dark, set a slower shutter speed. Too bright? Fit an ND filter.
  • A strong ND filter will enable shutter speeds that last for several seconds or minutes, creating smooth water. 
  • Use an ND grad to retain detail in the sky. 
  • Lens? use a good wide-angle lens. Sometimes, an ultra wide-angle lens will give you an unexpected result. If you only have a kit lens, the 24mm or the widest you have can still give you great photo, just focus on the framing.

Top tip: Set the Tungsten/Incandescent White Balance, or dial in a low Kelvin setting in order to add a cool overall tone.
