LEE Filters Neutral Density Grad Set (Hard / Soft) with Foundation Kit

$439

Photo

 

ONLY AVAILABLE AT PENINSULA PLAZA OUTLET

The Neutral Density Set (Hard / Soft) contains 3 graduated resin filters (100x150mm) that enable the photographer to adjust exposure over part of the photograph without effecting color balance, and can be used with both digital and film cameras.

Exposure can be controlled by 1, 2 or 3 stops, with the following included filters:

  • 0.3 GND
  • 0.6 GND
  • 0.9 GND

 

For example, when photographing a landscape in which the sky is much brighter than the foreground, placing the Neutral Density part of the filter onto the sky in the frame will reduce the sky exposure without effecting the foreground. This enables the cloud detail to be kept correctly exposed and avoids the "white out" effect caused by exposing the foreground.

Deciding Between a Hard and Soft ND Grad

It all depends 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. Where there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, a Soft Grad will gently balance exposure across the image.
