When you’re first starting out with photography and videography, you learn how all of your settings relate to one another without too much consideration for external modification.
The first thing that most people add to the mix is lighting. Obviously this changes the way that you think about your exposure, but after that, what else is there to learn?
I find that lots of middle ground shooters forget about the ways (or haven’t considered them at all) that you can manipulate the way that light enters your camera. Which is too bad considering it’s so easy and relatively cheap to do. One of the better examples of this is the recently announced Genustech Solar Eclipse ND.
The variable ND filter is one of the most valuable tools for outdoor photography and videography. It allows you to adjust the amount of ND that you want on the fly. When you’re shooting live events or are using natural light, it’s entirely necessary to capture consistent motion blur and depth of field.
What makes the Genustech Solar Eclipse ND so powerful isn’t just the ND though, it’s the parallel implementation of a circular polarizer. These two filters working together are incredibly powerful. You’re controlling not only the amount of light entering your lens, but also the quality of contrast that you’re capturing.
Check out the Genustech Solar Eclipse, and if you’re not already using these filters, start right now!
