The neutral density filter concerns. This is just another piece of camera equipment which should be in your bag at all times, to get better landscape photography! It's another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It has to be in the camera.
I am sure you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
You can shoot it so that every drop of water is in sharp relief... or you'll be able to shoot it so that it looks like a huge string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, do you realize that Niagara Falls really 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 tip...
We know that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we need a slow one and need a quick shutter speed.
Another great reason to put your camera on guide! You won't ever get award winning shots on automatic! They'll look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we need a really slow shutter speed, but it's a brilliant day? As you understand, just a certain amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure - should you let in too much, it'll destroy the shot.

So we first start closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? Imagine if we're at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.
Our next alternative would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That's nice, it's going to give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are limitations.
The simple fix is to block a number of that light, since our problem 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 certain amount of light. That's all! It doesn't change the light in any way - it's neutral. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's only less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot at waterfall that is cotton sweet, that silky - 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 could 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 tons of uses, not only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint article, I Will go into even more cool things that you certainly can do to enhance your landscape photography with these camera gear accessories that are indispensable.
