Recipe for a Perfect Photo: Clear Sky, Sunset and Water -- By MALIA WOLLAN
Published: February 25, 2013 The New York Times

On a recent evening, hundreds of photographers from Japan, Europe and across the United States gathered in the two prime spots to photograph the falls. Many arrived five hours early to stake a claim with their tripods, jockeying for unobstructed views of the cliff.

The mood was jovial; people swapped information about the technical minutiae of their cameras, sipped wine and relaxed in camp chairs.

Some arrived with personal photography tutors, cradling high-end digital cameras and huge telephoto lenses worth thousands of dollars. Others took a more laid-back approach.

“I’m no photographer; all I have is my iPhone,” said Cindy Saavedra, 46, who drove up from Fresno, Calif., with her three children and two other families, all of whom plunked down in lawn chairs with bags of Cheetos and Funyuns to watch the show. “I made a New Year’s resolution to see more natural wonders, so here we are.”

As the sun dropped, the chatty horde went quiet; the only sound the rapid-fire slap of hundreds of camera shutters and the click-click of smartphones.

“It’s happening!” a woman gasped. Despite low water, a faint sliver of water turned golden for about 10 minutes, as if generating its own light. Then the sky went dark.

“It’s done,” said Stephen Duzs, 53, of Budapest, folding up his tripod. “Elvis has left the building.”
