Photography Tutorials: Landscape photography- Filters

This is one video in a series of videos on landscape photography. This is a review of what I think are the best three filters for landscape photography. Includes polarizers, ND filter, and split neutral density filters. The equipment I use in the review is a nikon d300 with nikon 14-24mm lens and a split neutral density lee filter.

    @mcdonnelllee it is a lot easier, holding a filter in front of the camera doesnt move the camera so I dont see how that will cause shake unless you constantly hit the camera with the filter.

    can i ask why you dont use a holder for your filters? surely if your manually holding the filter to the lens whilst taking a long exposure (even with the aid of a tripod) the image would suffer from camera shake?

    @atyl1972 If you want the foreground exposed then I would take reading of the foreground and then adjust from there.

    also conor, my set up will be a lee foundation holder with the wide angle adaptor and a set of hitech nd grads, have you used hitech or got any info for me of them?

    conor, say you want to take a picture of the beach and the main subject will be the foreground, but the sky is pretty bright, so you use a split nd filter to saturate the sky….but where would you get the meter reading from, the foreground or the sky?

    @yurisendrew well partly yes, partly no. When you use tele converters and it says "decreases F stop by 2 stops. In that case F4 becomes F6. Those 0.2 are just small parts of F stops

    @QQQQcon The new Lee Filter Adapter for the Nikon 14-24mm is great for the 14-24! I highly recommend it.

    .6 is not four stops, four stops should be 1.2. If it says .6 on your grad ND then it's a two stop. Just sayin

    @QQQQcon Oh, that's right. I remember actually helping someone who had a similar issue. But oh well, what you're looking for is on it's way: A Lee Filter Holder for Nikon's 14-24mm was recently announced (/watch?v=fMX5p9Iwx3Y). In the middle time, don't forget what you can do with blu-tack 🙂

    @DaPsychologist You should probably always have a filter on your lens to avoid scratches and dust on your lens. Filters are easily replaceable if they get damaged, but lenses aren't. 🙂

    Interesting video…But I was wondering why you are not using a filter holder, instead of holding it yourself, in front of the lens? I am not sure about the Lee Filter's, but I paid about $20 for my filter holder from Tiffen. I would certainty be concerned holding the filter by hand when doing long exposures…
