I am certain you've seen landscape photography of a waterfall.

By the way, were you aware that Niagara Falls really ceased flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice which was obstructing the Niagara River? Envision a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our point...
We all know that to get the sharp image, we to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one and need a quick shutter speed.
Another good reason to place your camera on manual! You won't ever get award winning shots on automatic! They are going to look like everyone else's.
Imagine if we want a really slow shutter speed, but it's a bright day? Just a specific amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure, as you understand - should you let in too much, it will destroy the picture.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? Imagine if we are 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 is nice, it's going to give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are restrictions.
Since our problem is that too much light is entering the lens, the simple fix would be to block a number of that light.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's designed to block a a predetermined amount of light. That's all! It does not change the light in any manner - it's inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is just less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot at that silky, cotton candies 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 forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You can set a five stop along with a three stop neutral density filter collectively for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have lots of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo trick article, I'll go into even more cool things that you can do to enhance your landscape photography with these crucial camera gear accessories.
