Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Gear to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter concerns. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera gear which should be in your bag at all times! It is another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I'm 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!
By the way, do you realize that Niagara Falls actually stopped flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice that was blocking the Niagara River? Visualize a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We know that to get the image that is sharp, we are in need of a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one.
Another great reason to place your camera on guide! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They are going to look like everyone else's.
What if we want an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant daytime? As you know, just a particular amount of light can be let in for a great exposure - it is going to destroy the photo should you let in too much.

So we first begin closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? What if we're at the smallest 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 nice, it'll give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are limits.
The simple fix would be to block a few 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 is made to block a certain amount of light. That is all! It does not alter the light in any way - it is neutral. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there is simply less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot at waterfall that is cotton candies, that silky - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in various 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 lots of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint article, I Will go into even more cool things you can do to enhance your landscape photography with these camera gear accessories that are indispensable.
