Which ND fil­ter?

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

Neu­tral Den­sity fil­ters en­able you to block the flow of light into your cam­era, thereby ex­tend­ing your shut­ter speed. The strength of fil­ter you need will de­pend on the am­bi­ent light on lo­ca­tion and your ex­po­sure choices. Here we used a set of Firecrest fil­ters from For­matt-Hitech that in­cluded six, 10, 13 and a whop­ping 16-stop­per. Ev­ery stop en­ables you to dou­ble the ex­po­sure length, so con­sider that if you me­ter 1/125 sec with­out any fil­ter, at­tach­ing a six-stop­per will slow this down to 1/2 sec, while a 16-stop­per will take it longer, to 8 min­utes and 44 sec­onds.
