The neutral density filter is concerned by now's photo suggestion. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera equipment that should be in your bag at all times! It is another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It has to be in the camera.
I'm certain you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.

We realize that to get the image that is sharp, we to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one and want a fast shutter speed.
Another good reason to place your camera on manual! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.

So we start closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? What will happen if we're 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's fine, it's going to give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are constraints.
Since our difficulty is that too much light is entering the lens, the simple fix would be to block some of that light.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that is designed to obstruct a a predetermined amount of light. That is all! It does not alter the light in any way - it is inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is only less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot that sleek, cotton sweet waterfall - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in several 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 may set a three stop neutral density filter and also a five stop together for eight full stops! (That is a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo suggestion post, I Will go into even more cool things you can certainly do to enhance your landscape photography with these crucial camera equipment accessories.
