Your Camera Gear Should Include Neutral Density Filters to Get Better Landscape Photography!
Now's photo suggestion concerns the neutral density filter. This is another piece of camera equipment 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'm sure 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 looks like a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, did you know that Niagara Falls actually ceased flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice that was obstructing the Niagara River? Picture a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We all know that to get the image that is sharp, we to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one and desire a fast shutter speed.
Another good reason to set your camera on guide! 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's a brilliant daytime? Merely a specific amount of light can be let in for a great exposure, as you know - should you let in too much, it's going to ruin the photo.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? suppose that we are at the smallest 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 nice, it will give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are restrictions.
The simple fix is to block a few of that light since our problem is that too much light is entering the lens.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's designed to block a a predetermined amount of light. That's all! It doesn't change the light in any manner - it's neutral. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is only less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot at waterfall that is cotton candy, 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 set a five stop and also a three stop neutral density filter together for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have lots of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint article, I'll go into even more cool things that you can certainly do to improve your landscape photography with these indispensable camera equipment accessories.
