Sometimes you only want to neutrally densitize (I know its not a word, but I like how it sounds) only part of the image. Typically this involves landscapes where you want to darken the sky without blacking out the foreground. You can combine an underexposed and an overexposed image in Photoshop, of course, but that can be time consuming. You can use an HDR program to do it for you, but some of us want a more natural look, at least some of the time. Split Neutral Density filters provide just the ticket, and should be in every landscape photographer’s bag. The upper part of the filter darkens the image from one to three stops (depending on the strength chosen) decreasing the dynamic range between the sky and the foreground in the image.
We only stock 0.3 (1-stop) and 0.6 (2-stop) split ND filters.
Please note in the special instructions box which type and size of specialty filter you need.
