Two ND Filters and a New lens in the way!
Posted on Thu, January 13, 2011 @ 4:07 pm
Tiffen 52, 72 mm Neutral Density 0.6,0.9 Filters
First of all, looking at the current weather here, it is almost cloudly and sunny sometimes. However, we wanted to use something new to change the routine of shooting views. so we decided to get new filters and we chose ND filter.
Now let us know what does ND means?
In photography and optics, a neutral density filter or ND filter can be a colorless (clear) or grey filter. An ideal neutral density filter reduces and/or modifies intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition.
The purpose of standard photographic neutral density filters is to allow the photographer greater flexibility to change the aperture, exposure time and/or blur of subject in different situations and atmospheric conditions.
Example for using ND filter
Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G AFS ED VR-II LEN
This lens is the second version for the prevoius one, it is more stable with 4 f stop points. The reason for having this lens is because we faced some difficult moments when trying to shoot some birds or sport events and wanted to move to a higher level of professionalism. Also, this lens allows to shoot in low light situation with f/2.8 which is a great choice!
Now let us see the Lens Specifications
