Enhance Your Landscape Images By Using Split Neutral Density (ND) Filters

You'll find the sky is significantly brighter in relation to the landscape frequently when taking landscape pictures. This can ensure it is difficult to keep detail in the sky with no landscape being overly dark, and to keep detail in the landscape without the sky being overly glowing.

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

Normally, you may put the dark section of the filter over the sky to darken the sky, while the clear section is put over the landscape. After that you can show correctly for the landscape and don't have to worry about the sky being overly glowing.

Split neutral density filters come in two varieties - hard edge and graduated edge. Graduated border means that there is a soft transition between the soft and dark sections of the filter. As the transition appears more natural than a tough border graduated split neutral density filters or soft edge are typically chosen for landscape photography.

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

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

ND0.6 = 2 stops

ND0.9 = 3 stops

The larger in difference between the brightness of the sky and also the landscape, the stronger the filter you may desire to use.

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 lets you transfer the filter up and down, placing the dim section of the filter just where you will need it and to readily rotate the filter.

The key advantage of split neutral density filters over applications methods of equalizing exposure in a photo is that you can see the effect the moment you take the photo. It also saves on the work involved with applications based alternatives.

The disadvantage, though, is where the horizon is clearly outlined that split neutral density filters work best. If you have items, for example trees in your image, that are both below and over the horizon, you'll discover that the top of the object will probably be darkened while the bottom won't. This really is the primary problem with split neutral density filters, and in events like these a software solution to managing the exposure could be preferable.

Most communities have some sort of historical society. Try contacting the local library in the event that you can not locate a listing for one. Once you have tracked them down, pay a visit to them and ask to see old photographs of the region. Find an opportunity taken back as far as possible, the middle 1800's is perfect, and get a duplicate of the photo. Now take your equipment, go to the same spot and shoot a modern day photo from the same vantage point, etc. Attempt to duplicate as a lot of the photo as you can... if there's a horse and buggy going down the street, contain a car at the exact same spot in your photo. If there are people wandering down the sidewalk, place some folks in yours too! I am sure you know what I mean! You're trying to copy as much as possible. (Do not forget to take the picture at the same time of day!)

Print them out side by side once you are finished. This endeavor will teach you more than you could ever predict! It'll not just educate you on just how to work with your equipment, but nevertheless, it will educate you to look for and be observant of details. Not only that, this endeavor is well suited for kids just starting out in photography all the way through old retired expert shots. It all depends on you and just how much detail you need to carry.

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

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It's OK. Shoot at your own amount! Are you complex? If that's the case the strollers are included! We can even go deeper in the event you would like to... Is it the same size family group as the first? Are they made up of the same combination? (Guy, girl, three kids.)

In other words, you can keep it simple - no individuals in the slightest! Only the location. Or you also can get as elaborate as you want. This job is a guaranteed way to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and following photos. Compile them in a collection and give a copy to the neighborhood historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.

Afterward, do it again! 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'RE going to appreciate this photo job! Not only will you have plenty of fun, learn to master your equipment and develop a critical photo 'eye.' You'll quickly become known locally for your photography! To learn more, assess the resources box!
