Your Camera Equipment Should Include Neutral Density Filters to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter concerns. This is just another piece of camera gear 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 must be in the camera.
I'm certain you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
It's possible for you to shoot it so that each drop of water is in sharp relief... or you can shoot it so that it looks like a huge string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
By the way, did you know that Niagara Falls truly 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 are aware that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one and need a fast shutter speed.
Another good reason to put your camera on guide! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They'll look like everyone else's.
What if we desire an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant daytime? As you know, merely a specific amount of light can be let in for a great 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 lowest aperture setting - and we still have too much light.
Our next alternative would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That's nice, it is going to give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are limits.
The simple fix would be to obstruct 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 obstruct a certain amount of light. That's all! It doesn't change the light in any manner - it's 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 waterfall that is cotton candies, that glossy - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in several strengths. You can block one stop of light, three, five, and so on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You could put a five stop and also a three stop neutral density filter 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 post, I'll go into even more cool things that you can do to improve your landscape photography with these camera equipment accessories that are essential.
