To Get Better Landscape Photography, Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Equipment!
Now's photo tip concerns the neutral density filter. To get better landscape photography, this is just another piece of camera gear which should be at all times in your bag! It's 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!
By the way, were you aware that Niagara Falls truly stopped flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice that was blocking the Niagara River? Envision a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our point...
We are aware that to get the sharp image, we desire a fast shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we need a slow one.
Another good reason to place your camera on guide! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They are going to look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we want a really slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant day? Only a specific amount of light can be let in for a good exposure, as you know - it is going to destroy the shot should you let in too much.

So we first start closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? Imagine if we are at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.
Our next choice would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That's fine, it is going to give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are constraints.
The simple fix would be 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 is designed to block a certain amount of light. That is all! It does not change the light in any manner - it's inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's only less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot that silky, waterfall that is cotton sweet - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in a variety of 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 may place a five stop and 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 just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint article, I'll go into even more cool things you certainly can do to improve your landscape photography with these camera equipment accessories that are vital.
