TAKE IT TO THE MAX

If you want to max­imise mo­tion, use an ex­treme ND fil­ter

Digital Photograper - - Shooting Skills -

once you start ex­per­i­ment­ing with cap­tur­ing mo­tion, don’t be sur­prised if a) you get hooked on the tech­nique and b) you want to take the ef­fect much fur­ther. to do that, you’ll need to arm your­self with an ‘ex­treme’ neu­tral den­sity fil­ter. A ten-stop nD is the most pop­u­lar and prob­a­bly the most ver­sa­tile for gen­eral use, though weaker six-stop and stronger 15-stop nDs are also avail­able from man­u­fac­tur­ers such as lee Fil­ters and hitech. With a ten-stop nD fil­ter ex­po­sures are in­creased by 1,000x, so you can leave your shut­ter open for sev­eral min­utes in broad day­light and lit­er­ally cap­ture the pass­ing of time. Drift­ing clouds record as del­i­cate streaks, mov­ing wa­ter turns to milk and the ef­fect can look stun­ning.
