Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Gear to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter concerns. To get better landscape photography, this is just 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 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, did you know that Niagara Falls actually stopped flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice that was obstructing the Niagara River? Visualize a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We all know that to get the image that is sharp, we need a fast shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we need a slow one.
Another great reason to set your camera on guide! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They'll look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we desire an extremely slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant daytime? As you understand, just a particular amount of light can be let in for a good exposure - it'll ruin the photo, should you let in too much.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? What will happen if we're at the lowest aperture setting - and we still have too much light.
Our next alternative would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That's fine, it is going to give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are limitations.
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 made to obstruct a certain amount of light. That's 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 just less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot at waterfall that is cotton candy, that silky - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in several 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 could place a three stop neutral density filter along with a five stop together for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint post, I Will go into even more cool things that you can certainly do to improve your landscape photography with these essential camera gear accessories.
