Astounding Digital Photography Tips For Volborg Montana

Improve Your Landscape Images Using Split Neutral Density (ND) Filters

You'll find that the sky is a lot brighter in relation to the landscape, often when taking landscape pictures. This can make it almost impossible to keep detail in the sky without the landscape being overly dark, with no sky being overly glowing, and to keep detail in the landscape.

One remedy to this problem is the split neutral density filter. This is a filter that can be placed in front of the lens. One half of the filter is clear, while the other half is dark.

Usually, you may put the dim section of the filter over the sky to darken the sky, while the section that is clear is put over the landscape. You don't have to worry about the sky being overly glowing and can then expose right for the landscape.

Split neutral density filters - hard edge and graduated border. Calibrated border means that there is a soft transition between the soft and dark sections of the filter. Soft edge or graduated split neutral density filters are typically chosen for landscape photography because the transition appears more natural when compared to a hard edge.

Hard border split neutral density filters are somewhat more useful when taking a photo with a well defined horizon that forms a solid line. The split line of the filter can subsequently be placed along this line. They may be especially useful when the sun is on or simply above the horizon.

Both hard edge and graduated split neutral density filters are offered in an assortment of strengths: ND0.3 = 1 stop

ND0.6 = 2 stops

ND0.9 = 3 stops

The bigger in difference between the brightness of the landscape and the sky, the more powerful the filter you will wish to utilize.

Although split neutral density filters are available as glass screw-in filters, most photographers prefer a Cokin P or similar 'slot-in' based filter system. This enables you move the filter up and down, putting the dim section of the filter exactly where you need it and to easily rotate the filter.

The key benefit of split neutral density filters of equalizing exposure in a photo over applications processes is that you can see the effect when you take the photo. Additionally, it saves on the work involved with applications based solutions.

The disadvantage, though, is where the horizon is clearly outlined, that split neutral density filters work best. For those who have objects, like trees in your image, that are both below and over the horizon, you will realize the top of the object will probably be darkened while the bottom will not. This is the primary issue with split neutral density filters, and in situations like these a software solution to managing the exposure might be preferable.

Most communities have some kind of historical society. Try contacting the local library, in case you can not locate a listing for one. Once you have tracked them down, pay a visit to them and request to see old photographs of the region. Locate an opportunity taken back as far as possible, the middle 1800's is ideal, and get a copy of the photo. Now take your equipment, go to the exact same place and shoot a modern day photo from precisely the same vantage point, etc. Try to duplicate as much of the photo as you can... if there's a horse and buggy going down the road, contain a car at the same spot in your photo. If there are people strolling down the sidewalk, put in yours also! I am certain you know what I mean! You're attempting to copy as much as possible. (Do not forget to shoot the shot at the same time of day!)

Print them out side by side once you are finished. This project is going to educate you more than you could ever predict! It's going to teach you to try to find and be observant of details, although it'll not only teach you how to work with your gear. Not only that, this endeavor is well suited for children just starting out in photography all the way through old retired master shooters. Everything depends on you and how much detail you want to carry.

For example... In the initial photograph with folks wandering down the pavement... does your photo show them?

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It is OK. Shoot at your own level! Are you innovative? If so the strollers are contained! We can even go deeper in the event you want to... Is it the same size family group as the first? Are they made up of exactly the same mixture? (Guy, woman, three children.)

To put it differently, you can keep it simple - no folks at all! Just the place. Or you also can get as complex as you desire. This endeavor is a guaranteed method to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and after pictures. Compile them in a group and give a copy to the local historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.

Then, do it! Before long you are going to have enough of them to put together a 'then and now' type of publication! Chambers of Commerce love this kind of thing!

You ARE going to appreciate this photo job! Not only will you have plenty of fun, learn to master your equipment and create a critical photo 'eye.' You will fast become known in the community for your photography! To learn more, check the resources box!
