The Lee SW150Neutral Density 0.9 medium edged graduated resin filter reduces the exposure of the sky by 3 stopswithout effecting colour balance. The Grad offers a medium transitionfrom dark to light and allows you to create the perfect shot by controllingyour light source. ND Grads are an essential tool in modern landscapephotography on both digital and film cameras. The Lee SW150 ND Grad filtersmeasure 150 x 170 mm and are for use with the Lee SW-150 filter holder.
The LEE Filters range of Neutral Density(ND) Graduated Filters enable the photographer to selectively adjust exposureacross the frame without affecting colour balance. They are almost an essentialin modern landscape photography on both digital and film cameras and come in arange of strengths denoting the light stopping power of the filter. Neutraldensity graduated filters enable you to balance light intensity in one part ofa scene with another. For example, when photographing a landscape in which thesky is much brighter than the foreground, placing the neutral density part ofthe filter onto the sky in the frame will reduce the sky exposure withoutaffecting the foreground. This enables cloud detail to be kept correctlyexposed and avoids the “white out” effect caused by exposing for theforeground.
Graduated filters were used on many of the landscape images which feature on my website http://www.chrisbuttonphotography.co.uk/gallery
