To Get Better Landscape Photography, Your Camera Gear Should Contain Neutral Density Filters!
The neutral density filter concerns. This is just another piece of camera gear which should be in your bag at all times, to get better landscape photography! It's another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It has to be in the camera.
I'm certain you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
You can shoot it so that each drop of water is in sharp relief... or you'll be able to shoot it so that it looks like a huge string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, do you realize that Niagara Falls really 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 are aware that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one and are in need of a quick shutter speed.
Another great reason to put your camera on manual! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They'll look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we desire a really slow shutter speed, but it's a bright day? Just a particular amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure as you understand - it'll ruin the shot, should you let in too much.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? What will happen if we're at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.
Our next choice would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That's fine, it will give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are restrictions.
The simple fix would be to block some 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 designed to obstruct a a predetermined amount of light. That is all! It does not alter the light in any way - it is inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's simply less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot that silky, waterfall that is cotton sweet - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in several strengths. You can block one stop of light, three, five, and so forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may place a five stop along with a three stop neutral density filter together 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 Will go into even more cool things you can do to enhance your landscape photography with these camera equipment accessories that are indispensable.
