Tiffen variable neutral density filter for creativity...
I used a Tiffen variable neutral density filter to photograph the image above. One of the perks of this filter is the thin, yet wide outer ring that reduces vignette issues (darkening of the corners). Variable neutral density filters can be rotated in different degrees to increase length of exposure while maintaining depth of field in various light conditions. It's light enough to keep in your camera bag, and easy to use for a softly blurred effect.
Hope to catch up with you in an upcoming workshop, seminar or in one of my online BetterPhoto.com courses! Long Exposure Creativity starts tomorrow, along with Digital Infrared Photography, and Photoshop, Enhancing Images and Creating Works of Art. Happy Shooting! ~ Deb
