Lee Neutral Density 0.6 Hard Graduated Resin Filter 100x150mm
Lee Neutral Density Hard Grad
They are almost an essential part in modern landscape photography on both digital and film cameras and come in a range of strengths denoting the light stopping power of the filter. This 0.6 filter reduces the light by up to 2 stops.
Compatible with both digital and film photography
Whatever format you shoot, ND Grads help cameras record scenes more like we see them - with a broad tonal range that's lost if not captured in the moment.
Precise creative control
There is a place in landscape photography for both hard and soft grads. Which one you decide to use will depend mainly on the subject matter of your image.
As a general rule, a hard grad would be used for images containing a horizon, or any hard transition between the sky and the foreground - even with jagged or mountainous horizons, the exposure can be controlled far easier with a hard grad.
Soft grads perform best in woodland, mist, or interiors. Anywhere where there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, a soft grad will gently balance exposure across the image.
