Coming to you from Gary Gough, this great video will show you some of the things you can achieve with ND filters. Necessary, ND . filter simply darkened glass that reduces the amount of light that passes through the lens and reaches the sensor or film, allowing you to use longer shutter speeds. They have different intensities that cause different reductions in the amount of light. The most common options are the three, six, and 10 point filters, although as you can see, you can also use options like 15 stops, as Gough did for this shot. This allows you to do things like smooth out turbulent water or create fascinating cloud trails in the sky. Check out the video above for a full rundown from Gough.
