To Get Better Landscape Photography, Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Gear!
Now's photo hint concerns the neutral density filter. This is another piece of camera equipment which should be in your bag at all times, to get better landscape photography! It's another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It has to be in the camera.
I'm sure you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
You can shoot it so that each drop of water is in sharp relief... or you can shoot it so that it looks like a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, are you aware that Niagara Falls truly stopped flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice which was blocking the Niagara River? Visualize a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We know that to get the image that is sharp, we are in need of a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one.
Another good reason to place your camera on manual! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They're going to look like everyone else's.
What if we need an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant day? Just a specific amount of light can be let in for a great exposure, as you know - it is going to ruin the picture, if you let in too much.

So we first start closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? suppose that we are at the lowest 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 nice, it will give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are constraints.
The simple fix is to obstruct a number of that light, since our difficulty is the fact that too much light is entering the lens.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that is made to block a a predetermined amount of light. That's all! It doesn't change the light in any manner - it's neutral. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's only less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot that silky, cotton candy waterfall - 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 on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may 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 just 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.
