Great Digital Photography Tips And Hints For Fairfax Ohio

Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Gear to Get Better Landscape Photography!

Now's photo tip concerns the neutral density filter. This is just another piece of camera gear which should be in your bag at all times to get better landscape photography! It is another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.

I am sure you've seen landscape photography of a waterfall.

It's possible for you to shoot it so that each drop of water is in sharp relief... or you can 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 truly stopped flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice which was blocking the Niagara River? Imagine a before and after shot of THAT!

Anyway, back to our tip...

We know that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one and want a quick shutter speed.

Another great reason to put your camera on manual! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.

Imagine if we desire a really slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant day? Merely a particular amount of light can be let in for a good exposure, as you know - should you let in too much, it will ruin the photo.

So we 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's nice, it will give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are constraints.

The simple fix would be to block 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 made 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 only less of it.

Voilla! You are now able to shoot at cotton candies waterfall, that glossy - on a bright sunny day!

Neutral density filters come in various strengths. You can block one stop of light, three, five, and so on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You could put 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 trick article, I Will go into even more cool things that you certainly can do to improve your landscape photography with these camera equipment accessories that are vital.
