Your Camera Equipment Should Contain Neutral Density Filters, to Get Better Landscape Photography!
Now's photo suggestion concerns the neutral density filter. To get better landscape photography, this is just another piece of camera gear which should be in your bag at all times! It's another filter effect that can't be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I'm sure 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'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
Incidentally, did you know that Niagara Falls truly ceased flowing in 1848 for about 20 hours because there was ice which was blocking the Niagara River? Imagine a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our point...
We are aware 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 need a slow one.
Another great reason to place your camera on guide! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They'll look like everyone else's.
What if we need an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant day? Only a particular amount of light can be let in for a great exposure, as you know - it will destroy the photo if you let in too much.

So we begin closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? suppose that we are 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's nice, it is going to give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are limits.
The simple fix would be to block a number of that light since our problem is that too much light is entering the lens.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's designed to obstruct a certain amount of light. That's all! It doesn't alter the light in any manner - it's inert. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there is simply less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot that glossy, cotton candy waterfall - on a brilliant sunny day!
Neutral density filters come in a variety of strengths. You can block one stop of light, three, five, and so forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may place 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 only for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint post, I'll go into even more cool things you can do to improve your landscape photography with these camera gear accessories that are indispensable.
