Your Camera Gear Should Include Neutral Density Filters to Get Better Landscape Photography!
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 am sure you have 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'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a huge string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, do you realize that Niagara Falls really ceased flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice that was obstructing the Niagara River? Picture a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We are aware that to get the image that is sharp, we to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one and desire a quick shutter speed.
Another good reason to put your camera on guide! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They're going to look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we need a really slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant daytime? As you know, merely a certain amount of light can be let in for a great exposure - it is going to ruin the shot, 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 choice would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is certainly fine, it'll give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are limitations.
Since our difficulty is that too much light is entering the lens, the simple fix would be to block a few of that light.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that is designed to block a a predetermined amount of light. That's all! It doesn't alter the light in any manner - it is inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is 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 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 can place a five stop along with a three stop neutral density filter collectively for eight full stops! (That is a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo tip post, I'll go into even more cool things you can certainly do to improve your landscape photography with these camera equipment accessories that are indispensable.
