Your Camera Equipment Should Include Neutral Density Filters to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter concerns. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera equipment that should be at all times in your bag! It's another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I am certain you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
You can shoot it so that every drop of water is in sharp relief... or you'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a massive string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
By the way, are you aware that Niagara Falls actually stopped flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice which was blocking the Niagara River? Imagine a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We all know that to get the sharp image, we are in need of a fast shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one.
Another great reason to put your camera on guide! You won't ever get award winning shots on automatic! They're going to look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we want a really slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant daytime? As you understand, merely a particular amount of light can be let in for a good exposure - it's going to ruin the shot if you let in too much.

So we first begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? What will happen if we are at the smallest 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's nice, it is going to give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are limits.
Since our problem is that too much light is entering the lens, the simple fix is to obstruct a number of that light.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's designed to block a a predetermined amount of light. That is all! It does not alter the light in any way - it is neutral. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there is simply less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot that silky, waterfall that is cotton candies - on a bright sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in a variety of strengths. You can block one stop of light, three, five, and so on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may place a five stop and a three stop neutral density filter collectively for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo suggestion article, I'll go into even more cool things that you can do to enhance your landscape photography with these camera gear accessories that are essential.
