To Get Better Landscape Photography, Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Equipment!
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 not be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I am certain you've 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 resembles a massive string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
By the way, did you know that Niagara Falls actually stopped flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice that was blocking the Niagara River? Visualize a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We realize that to get the image that is sharp, we desire a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we want a slow one.
Another great reason to set your camera on manual! You will never 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 is a brilliant daytime? Merely a specific amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure as you understand - it's going to destroy the shot if you let in too much.

So we start closing down the aperture. What if that's not enough? Imagine if we are at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have too much light.
Our next choice would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is certainly fine, it will give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are limits.
The simple fix is to block a number 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's designed to obstruct a certain amount of light. That's all! It does not change the light in any way - it is inert. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there is simply less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot cotton candy waterfall, that sleek - on a brilliant 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 can place a three stop neutral density filter along with a five stop together for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have lots of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo suggestion article, I'll go into even more cool things that you certainly can do to improve your landscape photography with these indispensable camera equipment accessories.
