84.5mm Camera filters introduces New Reverse Graduated ND-filters for „golden hour“ in landscape photography

84.5mm Camera Filters, European manufacturer of photographic and cinematographic filters, introduces a new project named ND-filter.com & Photography.

Newly released reverse graduated ND filters from Ultimate line series with dimensions 100 x 150 mm are aimed for shooting during "Golden hour" when sun is over the horizon.

The filters are made from CR-39 Organic glass (class “A” optical material, U.S.A. patented) by difficult handmade technology, tested both visually and using modern measuring devices. They are compatible with standard “XL” filter holders ("Z" type filter holders).

The filter is available in following parameters:

- Reverse ND4 – 0,6 Neutral Density (http://nd-filter.com/ultimate-line-nd-filters/249-reverse-nd4-graduated-filter-06-neutral-density-nd-filter-reverse-transition-square-100-x-150mm.html)

- Reverse ND8 – 0,9 Neutral Density (http://nd-filter.com/ultimate-line-nd-filters/250-reverse-nd8-graduated-filter-09-neutral-density-nd-filter-reverse-transition-square-100-x-150mm.html)

These new products are available in ND-filter.com online shop from 21st February 2017 at introductory price.

Landscape / Outdoor photography is usually made during so called golden hour – at the time when sun is one hour before sunset or one hour after sunrise. During this time nature offers the most beautiful colors, the best light (light angle, color temperature of light) and tents of various tones of the sky. At the same time, however, sun is often very close to the horizon – when the usage of classic graduated ND filters (where graduation goes from the darkest (upper part of filter) to the lightest graduation (lower part of filter) is not recommended.

For shooting during so-called „golden hour“ seems to be the most ideal type of filter - REVERSED ND, on which graduation goes in different (reversed) direction – from the darkest part in the middle of filter (a part where usually the sun is on the photography) to the lighter in the upper part of filter. This will allow you to maximally reduce intensity of the sun during sunrise/sunset on the photography, while keep the rest of the sky ideally exposed. This results in a picture with ideal exposure also in direct backlight when sun is in front of you, photography with wide dynamic range and massive structure of the sky.

Note: Reverse ND filters are also made in these sizes: Classic line (84x100mm) and Professional line (84x150mm).

After several months of preparation we are pleased to start this project at the web page ND-filter.com (http://nd-filter.com/).

Our main goal is to support photographers and to awaken a passion for shooting photos in beginners.

The idea of this project arose from the impulse of several photo enthusiasts in 2016. They bought a few photo filters at our website. After a couple of months, these customers came independently of each other with a proposal of creating a new concept of website, where all landscape photographers (professionals and also hobbyists) can present their amazing pieces of landscape photography and share their experience about taking photos with using camera filters.

ND-filter & Photography website combines inspirational blog of customers’ practical experience and technical knowledge about landscape photography with modern (easy to use) online shop offering photo filters and camera accessories.

The biggest advantage of taking photos with camera filters is a natural looking photo result in a few seconds. The usage of next graphic program / graphic software isn’t necessary. Photo filters can easily bring special atmosphere into photos, improve or emphasize individual areas of the picture. They are very variable in the usage, so you can create many variations of photo result. The experimentation is welcomed, everything depends on the creativity and practical knowledge of the photographer.

Would you like to share your experience with using camera filters in landscape photography? We would love to hear from you.
