Schneider Graduated ND filters facilitate the balance of light in the event of high contrast between the sky and the landscape. Clouds become more defined and the sky becomes a deeper blue. The square filters are tinted halfway in a neutral grey, with a soft transition half-way through the filter. They can be maneuvered and rotated in the filter holder to adjust the transition according to the horizon.
Taking impressive photos as opposed to simple snaps requires not only experience and high-quality photo equipment, but also the appropriate high-quality photo filters because optical filters are indispensable tools for modern creative photography. Due to their impressive quality, B+W square filters have become the choice of many demanding professional and amateur photographers.
50% of the filter is clear and 50% has a Neutral Density of 0.9 (3 stops).
The transition from clear to ND is done with a SOFT EDGE (SE) transition line. SOFT EDGE grads lines are used with wide angle and normal focal length lenses. Graduated Neutral Density filters are used to balance exposure within a scene. One very common use is to balance the exposure of sky and earth in a landscape, avoiding overexposed blank white skies.
