Grad­u­ated Neu­tral Den­sity fil­ter

NPhoto - - Over To You... -

When shoot­ing with the sky in the frame, you may re­quire the use of a grad­u­ated neu­tral den­sity fil­ter, which dark­ens the top half of the frame. They come in a va­ri­ety of den­si­ties, de­pend­ing on how much you need to darken the sky. They also come in dif­fer­ent gra­di­ents, from soft tran­si­tions to hard. Seascapes of­ten ben­e­fit from hard grad­u­ated fil­ters (they tran­si­tion from light to dark very quickly). So Tantse used a 0.75 hard ND grad to darken the sky.
