Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Equipment to Get Better Landscape Photography!
Now's photo suggestion concerns the neutral density filter. To get better landscape photography, this is another piece of camera gear which should be in your bag at all times! It's another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I'm sure 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'll be able to shoot it so that it resembles a gigantic string of cotton candy! And everything in between!
By the way, were you aware that Niagara Falls truly 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 tip...
We all know that to get the sharp image, we desire a fast shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one.
Another great reason to set your camera on manual! You'll never get award winning shots on automatic! They will look like everyone else's.
What if we desire an extremely slow shutter speed, but it is a bright daytime? Just a particular amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure, as you know - it will ruin the picture should you let in too much.

So we first begin closing down the aperture. What if that isn't enough? What will happen if we're at the smallest aperture setting - and we still have an excessive amount of light.
Our next option would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That is nice, it is going to give us nicely saturated, noise free shots... but there are restrictions.
Since our difficulty is the fact that too much light is entering the lens, the simple fix is to obstruct some of that light.
Enter the 'Neutral Density Filter'.
The neutral density filter is a filter that's designed to block a certain amount of light. That is all! It doesn't change the light in any manner - it's neutral. The light going into the lens has all the same properties; there's just less of it.
Voilla! You're now able to shoot waterfall that is cotton candy, that sleek - on a bright 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 forth. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may place a five stop and a three stop neutral density filter collectively for eight full stops! (That is a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have lots of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo tip post, I Will go into even more cool things you certainly can do to improve your landscape photography with these indispensable camera equipment accessories.
