To Get Better Landscape Photography, Your Camera Gear Should Contain Neutral Density Filters!
The neutral density filter concerns. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera gear that should be at all times in your bag! It's another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I'm sure you have 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'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a huge string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
By the way, do you realize that Niagara Falls actually 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 realize that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one and are in need of a fast shutter speed.
Another good reason to place your camera on manual! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we desire an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant daytime? Merely a certain amount of light can be let in for a great exposure as you know - it is going to ruin the shot, should you let in too much.
If you're searching for that Canon or Nikon Camera in Pilottown, Louisiana you shouldn't forget to look at eBay for excellent possibilities and hard to beat prices

So we first start closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? suppose that we're at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.
Our next option would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is certainly nice, it will give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are constraints.
The simple fix is to obstruct some of that light since our difficulty is that too much light is entering the lens.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that is made to obstruct a certain amount of light. That is all! It doesn't change the light in any way - it's inert. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there's just less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot at waterfall that is cotton candies, that glossy - on a bright sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in various strengths. It's possible for you to block one stop of light, three, five, and so on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You could set 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 lots of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo tip post, I Will go into even more cool things that you can do to improve your landscape photography with these indispensable camera gear accessories.
