To Get Better Landscape Photography, Your Camera Gear Should Contain Neutral Density Filters!
The neutral density filter concerns. To get better landscape photography, this is just another piece of camera gear that should be in your bag at all times! It's 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 every 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 actually stopped flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice that was blocking the Niagara River? Envision a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We realize that to get the image that is sharp, we want a fast shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we need a slow one.
Another good reason to set your camera on guide! You won't ever get award winning shots on automatic! They are going to look like everyone else's.
What if we want a really slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant day? Merely a certain amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure, as you know - it'll destroy the shot should you let in too much.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? What will happen if we are 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 fine, it'll give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are limits.
The simple fix would be to obstruct 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's made to block a a predetermined amount of light. That is all! It doesn't change the light in any manner - it is neutral. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there is only less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot at that silky, cotton sweet waterfall - 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 set a three stop neutral density filter along with a five stop 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 hint post, I Will go into even more cool things you can certainly do to enhance your landscape photography with these vital camera equipment accessories.
