Getting It Right In Camera: Using Filters To Accurately Capture the Scene
Awesome !!! ....thanks RT.
Btw, for shots like this going mono/b+w is a great idea, really accentuates the aspects of the image that you want to really come through, also, given the often strong color cast incurred via long exposure shots makes things in PP much easier to deal with.
LOVE that location. Here's a recent image shot with my little OM-D & Pany 20...
Thanks for sharing, RT!
That site is my "go-to" site for refreshment on photography tips for things I don't do frequently, such as capturing lightning, etc...
LoL I've got one gradiated ND filter - just have to remember that I have it....
Nice article, thanks for sharing.
I'm really into the idea of using nd/gnd filters now for landscapes and skylines. All I have so far is a Cokin P 2-stop grad and another straight 2 stop ND. I can't say I'm really that fond of using the Cokin filters so far though. I already have some light surface scratches (away from the visible part on my lenses) on my grad. Harder to handle than screw-in filters and harder to pack in my bag.
I found this article pretty interesting also.
"The Ultimate Guide To Neutral Density Filters" by Peter Hill | Redbubble
It goes more into depth about using Neutral Density and Graduated N.D. filters. What I'm curious about is the ones using a Hoya 400x (9 stop) and the Lee GND filters? Are they screwing in the Hoya and then using a filter holder for the Lee? Seems a bit wonky to me but the results are fantastic.
Thanks for the link, Panther, that's an awesome photograph and a great demo of ND grad technique. The only small adjustment I'd make to your thread title is that it's well worth a visit to the link even if you are familiar with grad filters! :smile:
