I used my B+W 10-stop the other day to do some long exposures at sunset and thought I’d write up the steps I took to get the shot. In this case however I was a bit lazy and decided to just put the filter on and take some test shots to work out the exposure.
As it was nearly sunset, I also needed to use a graduated neutral density (GND) filter to balance the exposure between the sky and foreground. Note the only processing done on the above shots is converting from RAW to JPG and applying camera’s Landscape picture style.

Hi, Thanks for this great n useful post, i’m using ND filter for landscape photography, but im always getting black spots in different areas of the picture, i was wiondering what’s the reasong behind ! I have them too, it’s because there are some dirty spots on the sensor and they really show on f22. Thanks for the refresher, I have a set of ND filters been sitting in the case for some time now. Or you could just download the NDtimer app that calculates it all for you so you don’t miss a shot experimenting.
Question: Assuming without the use of nd grad, what would be the better method to expose correctly? Stupid question, but I’m assuming you have to wait for the sun to drop below the horizon to avoid a vertical stripe (from the sun moving) on your photo. Got hooked with ND filters recently and have had experience with (a) cokin type square filters, (b) fixed ND that is screwed at the end of the lens and (c) a screwed variable neutral density.
The variable ND screwed on the lens made it easy to set your shot and 'dial-in' your ND strength.
The screwed fixed ND had decent results but was an inconvenience having to take them out set the shot and screw it back in. I liked the Cokin type since you could drop several filters into the holder that is screwed on the lens. Mervyn, I've never (that I know of) had problems with light entering the viewfinder once the shutter is open.
However, because of the very long exposures involved, it is essential you block the eyepiece of the optical viewfinder as stray light can get in during the exposure and mess things up. Sam, if you're going to use the camera's metering system then you do it before putting the filter on, and then adjust it based on the strength of the filter.
Adding my $0.02 on the subject of filters, agreed that it's nonsense for anyone to say you should not use them for sunsets!
In November of last year, we featured a different project of Cooley’s that also involved flares and snowy landscapes. The folks at National Geographic just did a solid favor for all the adventurous outdoor photographers out there.
After a lot of speculation and a juicy tidbit here and there, a more complete spec list and first photo of the much-anticipated Canon 5D Mark IV has leaked.
Recently I got a message from a person who said that they liked my pictures, but unfortunately they don’t have a "photographic eye." This inspired me to write the following article about basic aesthetics and their relationship to photography.
VSCO today announced the launch of its new Open Studio, a free-to-use massive studio space in New York City. The multi-aperture computational camera is an exciting technology that's emerging in the world of photography, and it appears that Nikon wants in. Yesterday I spent my morning taking some photos in New York City along the Hudson river with my 4x5 camera.


Want to see how a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer responds to a request for free images in exchange for "credit" from a major news corporation? If you wanna capture quality product photos on the cheap, this short little DIY tutorial is going to be a great resource.
This photo shows what Sports Illustrated photographer Simon Bruty packed for the Rio 2016 Olympic games, the 8th Summer Games he has covered. Lightroom is a very powerful tool, and this quick timelapse by filmmaker and photographer Bart Oerbekke demonstrates how a series of simple edits were able to really bring one of his landscape photos to life.
Animals stealing action cameras is nothing new—monkeys, seagulls, and foxes have all gotten their 15 minutes of fame this way. News Corp photographer Brett Costello was robbed of $40,000 in camera gear at a cafe in Rio a few days ago. After showing you how to make a tripod using a piece of string, I’m going to go a little more surreal this time by explaining how an old frying pan can be used to get dramatic low angle images.
Former Russian Olympic swimmer Evgeny Korotyshkin usually reserves his Instagram for posting pictures of swimming events or selfies with his medals. In this post we bring you beautiful starry night photography examples to give you an inspiration.
If you like this article, you might be interested in other articles on Meteor Shower August 2010, Beautiful Nature Pictures and Beautiful Tree Pictures. ND filters are very common but they are typically only 3-stops in strength (reducing the amount of light by 8 times) so a 10-stop one is quite extreme.
I wanted to achieve the misty water look so I found some rocks with water washing over them and composed my shot.
At this point I usually take a test shot without the ND filter and then multiply the shutter speed by 1000.
Positioning the GND filter when also using a 10-stop ND filter is difficult because it’s hard to see anything with the ND filter on.
The settings I used were just based on experience from previous shots I’d taken using the filter.
Other processing steps I would take include straightening of horizon, local exposure adjustments if needed, white balance, sharpening, noise reduction etc. I also tried to manipulate all sorts of intentions Balenc on my camera (Nikon d80) but they all did not Tredana did not go out with me as required nearby colors of reality even. I use Kood which has a slightly oblong filter (about 8cm x 10cm) for a greater range of where to put the horizon. I was shocked to see the vignetting I get even though I swap it out with a B+W Neutral filter of the same design that gives me no vignetting.
The only problem with it is that it has a slight warm tint that affects white balance, however that is easily adjusted in camera or in post. I perfer the first shot with the underexpposed rocks becauseit is more realistic; it captures the mood of the sun going down better.
Chris did not explicitly say this but getting that effect is the motivation for using a long exposure.
A reverse graduated ND filter (Google it) is a fantastic tool for sunsets when the horizon is flat, e.g. It was titled Take Refuge, and showed various locations illuminated by the red glow of road flares. They put every US Geological Survey (USGS) topographical map from across the United States on one easy-to-navigate site and made them easy to print out at home. A 60TB drive would be massive by any standard, but the latest Seagate SAS drive is mind-blowing for one other very important reason: it's a solid state drive.


Louis Post-Dispatch who won the Pulitzer Prize with his paper this year for his coverage of protests in Ferguson, Missouri. In it, you see how an $8 IKEA table turns into a full-fledged product photo booth with just a few modifications and some creative foam board placement. Then yesterday, while covering an event at the Olympics yesterday, Costello spotted the thief pretending to be him. Photographer Aaron Anderson has put together a lighting tutorial that will show you how he uses one light, a black flag, and a white card to capture beautiful, dramatic headshots. But when he was robbed at gunpoint yesterday in Rio, he posted a very different photo: a picture of the gun-wielding teens who allegedly robbed him. Having fun shooting with it, even if through a lot of trial and error sequences, until I read this.
Give it a go - just be aware of vignetting from stacked filters, and make sure they're good quality. Ill try to post some pics of the filters on the link later - so if you don't see it below, visit it later.
It is a 9 (Not sure of the technical description), but seeing your picture makes me want to get a darker one for longer exposures. But for the record, on my 40D I used Evaluative metering which is the default, but on my 7D I found it acted more like spot metering so I switched to Center Weighted.
Instead, Cooley simply opened up his 4×5 camera and launched military-grade emergency flare into the night sky.
I had one sheet of film left, and I noticed that some nice-looking clouds were developing over the Hudson. Last Friday, Carson was contacted by what appears to be a CBS account on Twitter that regularly Tweets requests for image usage.
Seventeen days, four thousand miles driving and a lot of shutter actuations later, the gorgeous time-lapse above serves as proof that he made the trip. Night photography refers to photographs taken outdoors between dusk and dawn where photographers have a choice between using artificial light and using a long exposure, exposing the scene for seconds, minutes, and even hours in order to give the film or digital sensor enough time to capture a usable image.
There’s some post-processing work involved in these photos, but much of it has to do with being at the right time, in the right place, and knowing what to do with your camera. My 40D didn’t allow me to do this so I had to position the GND filter on first, take it off the camera (while still in its holder), screw the ND filter on, and then put the GND filter back on. Larger GND filters can avoid this but since I only have Cokin P-sized ones I decided to zoom in slightly (11mm vs 10mm) to minimize vignetting.
This allows you to compose using the ND Grad and then just slip in the ND in front of it without changing the composition.
There are plenty of Black Glass images on the web revealing no vignetting but I see your sample and I see vignetting and also notice you mentioned it was B+W.
I can imagine that exposing this photo would be difficult as light would be changing throughout the exposure time so hats off! I just cannot figure out why I get it with this filter but not with another filter of the same basic design by the same manufacturer but just a different glass piece.
