Your Camera Equipment Should Include Neutral Density Filters, to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter is concerned by now's photo hint. To get better landscape photography, this is just another piece of camera equipment which should be in your bag at all times! It is another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I am certain you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
It's possible for you to shoot it so that every drop of water is in sharp relief... or you can shoot it so that it resembles a gigantic 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 which was blocking the Niagara River? Envision a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We realize that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one and need a fast shutter speed.
Another great reason to set your camera on manual! You won't ever get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we want an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a bright daytime? As you know, only a certain amount of light can be let in for a great exposure - it's going to destroy the picture, if you let in too much.

So we start closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? suppose that we are at the lowest aperture setting - and we still have too much light.
Our next option would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is certainly fine, it is going to give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are limitations.
The simple fix is to block a few of that light, since our difficulty is that too much light is entering the lens.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's made to block a certain amount of light. That is all! It doesn't change the light in any way - it is neutral. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is only less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot at cotton candy waterfall, that glossy - 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 place a five stop and 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 post, I Will go into even more cool things that you can do to improve your landscape photography with these indispensable camera equipment accessories.
