Tip of the Week: Filters Can Help

 

When shooting a bright sky with clouds and a foreground such as a grassy strip or a water body, it is advisable to use a graduated ND filter. Without the filter, you may be at a risk of overexposing the sky or underexposing the foreground. As a camera’s sensor is unable to deal with the high dynamic range of a scene like this, the graduated ND filter will darken the sky without irrevocably underexposing the foreground.
