LEE 100mm ND 0.9 Grad soft Filter
Lee Neutral Density Graduated filters allow you to adjust exposure without affecting the colour balance and are the ideal tool for landscape photographers looking to control and darken the brighter parts of a scene, such as the sky. This 100 x 150mm filter is partially clear, and partially 0.9 Neutral Density (3 stops), allowing the transition to be blended into the scene. ND Grad filters are available with soft or hard transitions from dark to clear. A Lee Filter Holder and Lee Adapter Ring are not included and both are required to attach the filter to your lens.
Lee ND Grad Filters
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.
