Extended Exposures with the Singh-Ray Mor-Slo Neutral Density Filter

Singh-Ray recently introduced their most substantial, long-exposure-inducing solid neutral density filter ever: the Mor-Slo ND 10-Stop Filter. This optically dense filter provides a highly effective reduction in exposure, allowing you to utilize larger apertures or longer shutter speeds for greater control in bright conditions.

Holiday 2012: Using Video Filters

This video from B&H surveys various optical filter options for video production. Mia McCormick discusses the basics of neutral density filters, circular polarizing filters, UV filters and soft effect filters. You’ll learn about the unique benefits of using an optical filter during the capture process—benefits which cannot be replicated in post production.

Holiday 2012: HDSLR 101

Singh-Ray Filters

Not long ago, filters were part and parcel of any worthwhile camera system. If you wanted to warm up the palette of a dreary day, you used a filter. Ditto for converting daylight to tungsten light, tungsten to daylight, and daylight to (or from) fluorescent lights.

Filters for Landscape Photography

With the exception of the filters used for black-and-white photography (see the article Black & White Landscape Photography) the numbers of filters used for capturing color landscapes are few, mostly due to the fact that, in digital imaging, many white balance and filter effects can be addressed in camera.

Shooting Better Sunsets: Advice from Michael Freeman

I recently was able to talk to Michael Freeman about photographing better sunsets. Admittedly, I can't do this for the life of me, and have always found photographing people to be much easier. Michael is the author of the first three books in the Focal Press Field Guide series: The Photographer’s Eye Field Guide, The DSLR Field Guide and The Exposure Field Guide.



HDSLR Guide Chapter 4: Filters

While many "looks" can be achieved in post-production, certain aspects of the image are better controlled before the image is recorded. Optical filters modify the light before it enters the lens. The benefit of using optical filters instead of digital filters is that there is no added time in post production and less degradation of the image quality, especially in HDSLRs, which already have limited color space and a highly compressed image.
