I love using filters. My favorite manufacture of filters is Singh-Ray Filters. They are made right here in the USA. singh-Ray makes filters for us photographers and many profesional Nature Photographers use there filters above all else. I learned about Singh-Ray from my dear friend Tony Sweet. (www.tonysweet.com).
Check out Tony's website and see for yourself. You can look at the Singh-Ray Filters line by going to www.sigh-ray.com. Use vinny10 promo code for 10% off your entire filter order.
Here are a few images using the mentioned filters.
The image on the left was shot with a 3 stop ND filter. It wasn't quite enough to smooth out the water. I switch to a 10 stop Singh-Ray mot-slo and got the results on the right.
The image at the top was shot with no filter. Camera was a Nikon D5 with a 14-24 f/2.8 at f/16. ISO was set at 100. The second image was shot with a 15 stop filter with the same camera set up. You can see the difference is amazing. Note. Controlling light is what filters are all about. The time of day was about 4 PM so the sun was still fairly high in the sky. We were still able to make a image controlling the light with th filter,evern though the light wasn't ideal.
Until next time keep shooting. Thanks you and have a blessed day
