Waterfall photography is dependent on one thing; weather. Aside from your photography composition, weather is the one thing that can make or break a waterfall image. It’s of the utmost importance to choose the correct times to shoot waterfalls during the day based on what your conditions are. If there’s one mistake that I see new photographers make, it’s that they try to force a photograph into the wrong weather situation. In this section, I’ll take you through the reasons why weather plays such a huge role in your waterfall photography and how to choose the best times to shoot waterfalls.
