Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Equipment to Get Better Landscape Photography!
The neutral density filter is concerned by today's photo suggestion. This is another piece of camera gear that should be in your bag at all times to get better landscape photography! It is another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I am sure you have 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 can shoot it so that it looks like a massive string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, do you realize that Niagara Falls really ceased flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice that was obstructing the Niagara River? Visualize a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our point...
We realize that to get the image that is sharp, we need a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one.
Another great reason to put 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 a really slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant daytime? Merely a certain amount of light can be let in for a good exposure as you know - it is going to destroy the shot 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 lowest 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 certainly fine, 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 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 is made to obstruct a certain amount of light. That is all! It does not change the light in any way - it is inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is just less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot cotton candies waterfall, that glossy - 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 could put a three stop neutral density filter along with a five stop collectively for eight full stops! (That is a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons 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 camera equipment accessories that are crucial.
