Story and Photography by Kelly Funk

In almost every workshop I put on, regardless of content, I always get at least one person asking about filters — specifically, solid neutral density (ND) and graduated ND. A common question that was asked recently by one of my participants was: What filters do I need and when do I use what? Based on that I thought it was time for a run down on what can be very confusing when faced with buying the right filters and what conditions to use them under.

I’m going to talk specifically about the types of graduated ND  filters and their strengths, and also how solid ND filters work to improve certain situations.
