The waterfalls in Devils Kitchen can be tricky to photograph on sunny days. A rainy or overcast day when light is soft and balanced will be your best bet. Just basic photography gear will be needed to produce a pleasing image.

Helpful suggestions on photographing Devils Kitchen:
1) Solid tripod will allow you to use a slow shutter speed to achieve the silky look in the water.
2) Remote shutter switch will eliminate any chance of camera shake caused from pressing the shutter button.
3) Polarizing filter will remove reflections on the water, glare on surrounding rocks plus saturate colors.
4) Neutral density filters and / or a Lee Big Stopper filter can also be used if you really want to slow the shutter speeds down, but overall a polarizer will work fine.
