Shoot professional photos and increase expressiveness with ND filters

All the photographic works in this guide are awarded photographic works from the International Filter Photo Contest.

Recent photographic trends show an increased popularity of slow shutter photography. The main attractiveness of shooting at a low shutter speed is the potential of creating those impressive and vibrant images showing things the naked eye usually cannot see, conveying your own taste, creativity and feelings.

Must-have tools in slow shutter photography are ND filters (filters for light reduction). By understanding and mastering the use of ND filters, you will remarkably increase the expressive potential of your shots.
