Frequently Asked Questions

Why buy a Graduated ND Filter?

To perfectly balance exposure in your landscape photographs.

Graduated Neutral Density Filters have an ND coating on one half of the filter so that light is diminished across half your frame. This is so you can balance your exposure when there is a strong source of light coming from one side – like when you’re shooting in the forest, in the mountains or at sunset and sunrise. A Graduated ND Filter helps you balance the highlights and lowlights for more balanced exposure.

Who should buy a Graduated ND Filter?

Landscape photographers and anyone wanting more detail in their landscape highlights and lowlights.

Graduated Neutral Density filters filter out light across a portion of the frame allowing you to better balance your exposure and capture more detail in the highlights and lowlights. Graduated and Reverse Graduated ND filters block light across half the frame – perfect for when the background is bright and foreground is light or vice versa. A Centre Graduated ND filter is made for sunsets and sunrise or when there is a bright light at the centre of the frame. Graduated ND filters will help you better balance your exposure when capturing landscapes.

What does a Graduated ND Filter do?

A Graduated ND filters out a set amount of light from a portion of the frame.

Graduated Neutral Density filters filter out light across a portion of the frame allowing you to better balance your exposure and capture more detail in the highlights and lowlights. For example a Graduated ND8 blocks 3 f-stops of light across half your frame – perfect for when the background is bright and foreground is light or vice versa.

What does a Reverse Graduated ND Filter do?

A Reverse Graduated ND Filter helps you balance sunrise and sunset landscape photographs.

A Reverse Graduated ND Filter starts with the darkening in the centre of the frame and it fades across the top half of the frame to cut brighter light at the horizon while still capturing the details of the sky for balanced exposure when shooting sunrises and sunsets. By effectively darkening the horizon line across your frame, it allows you to capture greater detail in the highlights near the horizon and in the lowlights in the top and bottom of your landscape images.

What does a Centre Graduated ND Filter do?

A Centre Graduated ND Filter helps you balance sunrise and sunset landscape photographs.

A Centre Graduated ND Filter has a narrow band of darkening across the centre of the frame for balanced exposure when shooting sunrises and sunsets. By effectively darkening the horizon line across your frame, it allows you to capture greater detail in the highlights and lowlights of your landscape images when the light source is close to the horizon.
