To Get Better Landscape Photography, Neutral Density Filters Should Be Included by Your Camera Equipment!
The neutral density filter is concerned by now's photo hint. To get better landscape photography, this is just another piece of camera equipment which should be at all times in your bag! It's another filter effect that can not be duplicated after the fact. It must be in the camera.
I'm sure you have seen landscape photography of a waterfall.
You can 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!
By the way, do you realize that Niagara Falls truly ceased flowing for about 20 hours in 1848 because there was ice which was obstructing the Niagara River? Picture a before and after shot of THAT!
Anyway, back to our tip...
We know that to get the image that is sharp, we want a quick shutter speed and to get the cotton candy blur we desire a slow one.
Another good reason to put your camera on guide! You will never get award winning shots on automatic! They'll look like everyone else's.
What if we desire a really slow shutter speed, but it is a brilliant day? Just a specific amount of light can be let in for an excellent exposure, as you know - it'll destroy the shot, should you let in too much.

So we start 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 option would be to go with the slowest film or ISO setting we can. That's nice, it'll give us nicely saturated, sound free shots... but there are restrictions.
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 is all! It does not alter the light in any manner - it's neutral. The light entering the lens has all the same properties; there's just less of it.
Voilla! You are now able to shoot at that glossy, waterfall that is cotton candy - 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 on. Plus various densities can be 'stacked' for even more light blockage. You may set a three stop neutral density filter and a five stop collectively for eight full stops! (That's a LOT of light!)
Neutral density filters have tons of uses, not just for waterfalls. In tomorrows photo hint article, I'll go into even more cool things you can certainly do to improve your landscape photography with these camera equipment accessories that are indispensable.
