Waterfalls and cascades have been a subject of mine since I started shooting nature in the early 90s, and no matter where my photographic interests take me, I always end up back at a river, looking for the next tumbling flow of water that will entice me.  Waterfalls seem to universally capture our interest and imagination.  Few would argue they are not enchanting and beautiful.  I know this because over half of the photography questions I receive are regarding water, from what settings and equipment to use, to “where was that?”

My plan here is it threefold.  The first, obviously, is to display beautiful photographs of waterfalls and cascades.  I will be inviting contributing members to the group who will be the ones who judge the submitted artwork.  They will be top notch waterfall photographers whose work I respect, and whose personalities will be a benefit to the group.  I will be honest, the work will be judged critically, and only the work judged good enough will be displayed.  However, this brings me to the next parts.

This group is about sharing knowledge.  With that in mind, I am hoping for weekly blog articles that will cover everything from basic technique and equipment to more advanced ideas, as well as places to shoot.  This is why I am going to be inviting not only the best, but those that have a desire and willingness to share, mentor, and participate.

Thirdly, I want to be able to have the group offer critiques.  This is always a slippery slope, as anyone who has been involved with mentoring and critiques knows.  But the rules will be laid out and clear, and for those who wish to get honest feedback and pointers on how to improve will be encouraged to take part.

It is going to take some time to get this all in place, however, once we are rolling, I am confident that many people will find this group to be a great resource.
