Neutral Density photographs

A ND (Neutral Density) filter is a totally neutral filter that cuts down on the amount of light entering the lens, much like the glass or plastic of darkened sunglasses.  It allows slowing of shutter speed right down to seconds, minutes, or hours, or the use a wider aperture. For artistic purposes long exposure images leave blurred and streaked skies, water, wheat fields, for example, wherever there is movement.  The ND filters come in different grades or densities, defined by how much light they block from entering the camera.
