To Get Better Landscape Photography, Your Camera Gear Should Include Neutral Density Filters!
The neutral density filter concerns. This is just another piece of camera equipment that should be in your bag at all times, to get better landscape photography! It is 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 every drop of water is in sharp relief... or you'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, did you know that Niagara Falls truly ceased flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice which was blocking the Niagara River? Envision a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We all know that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we need a slow one and need a quick shutter speed.
Another great reason to put your camera on manual! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They're going to look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we need an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant day? Just a particular amount of light can be let in for a great exposure as you know - it'll ruin the picture, should you let in too much.

So we first begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? suppose that we are at the lowest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.
Our next alternative would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is fine, it will give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are constraints.
The simple fix is to obstruct some 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 designed to obstruct a certain amount of light. That is all! It does not alter the light in any way - it is neutral. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's simply less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot at that glossy, cotton candy waterfall - on a brilliant 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 forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may put a five stop along with a three stop neutral density filter together for eight full stops! (That is a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not just 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 vital.
