Your Camera Equipment Should Contain Neutral Density Filters to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter is concerned by now's photo tip. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera gear that should be at all times in your bag! It is another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It has to be in the camera.
I'm sure you've seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
It's possible for you to shoot it so that every drop of water is in sharp relief... or you can shoot it so that it looks like a huge string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, are you aware that Niagara Falls really ceased flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice which was obstructing the Niagara River? Picture a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We all know that to get the image that is sharp, we want a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one.
Another great reason to put your camera on manual! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They're going to look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we desire an extremely slow shutter speed, but it's a bright daytime? Just a particular amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure, as you understand - it will ruin the picture, if you let in too much.

So we start closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? suppose that we're at the lowest aperture setting - and we still have too much light.
Our next choice would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is nice, it'll give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are restrictions.
The simple fix would be to block a few of that light, since our problem is the fact that too much light is entering the lens.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's made to obstruct a a predetermined amount of light. That's all! It does not alter the light in any way - it's inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is just less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot that glossy, waterfall that is cotton candies - on a bright sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in a variety of strengths. It's possible for you to block one stop of light, three, five, and so forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You can place a five stop and also a three stop neutral density filter collectively for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have lots of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo trick article, I Will go into even more cool things you can certainly do to enhance your landscape photography with these camera gear accessories that are indispensable.
