Flowing Water

Photographing moving water is sometimes still a challenge for me. I am constantly trying to find the balance between letting the water flow across the image and avoiding ending up with no texture to the water at all. Every scene is different. The water flows at different speeds, the camera is at a different distance from the subject, or perhaps I am using a different focal length. At least with digital, you can do a quick preview to make sure you are in the ballpark. Even so, I always bracket the shutter speeds. What I think I want in the field is usually not the image I end up choosing on the monitor. Hmmm, I think I might have stumbled across a good excuse to upgrade my equipment ;)
