Beau­ti­ful blurred wa­ter

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills Camera Techniques -

Neu­tral Den­sity fil­ters lessen the flow of light into your lens, en­abling you to lower your shut­ter speed (mak­ing a tri­pod a must) for a blurred wa­ter ef­fect. ND fil­ters come in dif­fer­ent strengths or ‘stops’, from sub­tle to al­most opaque. The strength you need will de­pend on how slow you want to go. Each stop lets you dou­ble your shut­ter speed, so a three-stop ND re­duces 1/60 sec to around 1/8 sec, while a 10-stop­per takes 1/60 sec to 15 sec­onds.
