I use a variable neutral density filter to control exposure when shooting video. I also use an ND filter if I want to use wider apertures or longer shutter speeds in bright light.
After seeing Marlene’s great post and video about using a variable neutral density filter, I thought I would give you some tips for choosing the right filter. There are a lot of options when you’re shopping for optical filters. Check out the video and find out how to get the right tools and save some money!
Rob Knight has been a professional artist in Atlanta, Georgia for over twenty
years. He’s been a photographer for more than half of that time, an Adobe Certified Expert since 2009, and an educator since 2010. Whether in the mountains of his home state of Georgia or the rain forests of Costa Rica, Rob loves to chase beautiful light and help other
photographers make beautiful images. He is best known for his nature and travel
photo workshops, and he feels that hybrid nature photography is the next step for
the genre. Rob’s work these days includes shooting video along with stills to
create hybrid eScapes. “I think my students are going to be as excited as I am
about hybrid nature photography,” Rob explains, “Especially when they learn
that they can use tools that they already have to add another layer of creativity
and storytelling to their photography.”
