Q. Would you mind sharing how you take those waterfall photos?

A. ok, here you go... you're going to need a few items..

1. The Olympus CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adapter  https://amzn.to/2KNzQhD
Here is an aftermarket version https://amzn.to/2xehtiO

2, A Neutral Density Filter https://amzn.to/2WbyLWg

3. Good Idea to put a lens shade on that so you'll need a step-up ring to prevent vignetting and the hood

That's what you need I do it a little different

I use a circular polarizer on first, then the step-up ring, then a 49 mm ND filter, and then the lens hood

Now for the camera settings!

Ues the A aperture mode. Set the f/8 and the ISO should be at 100.
Find a rock or fallen tree or use a tripod and set the self-timer for 2 sec so you won't move the camera during the long exposure...
