Whitewater Photography Tutorial

So, from time to time I get asked about gear and techniques for taking photos on the river. Therefore, I decided to put together a short tutorial of the things that seem to work best for me -- through lots of practice and really bad photos along the way. If you're just getting into photography, hopefully some of this information will prove useful.

Wheels & Water: Tutorial: Basics of Whitewater Photography

Enjoy!

Nate, it's people like you that make me feel dirty when I use the preset modes on my DSLR. Great writeup. Thanks.

Good job with the explanation of composition.
In all my years of teaching high school photo and video I find that the cameras are pretty much smart enough now to get a reasonable exposure.
But unless you take the time to arrange what you see, your pictures will always continue to suck.
