ND Filter. Don't go Variable! | Jonas Rask

ND Filter. Don't go Variable! | Jonas Rask | photography | Scoop.it

A little warning for my fellow photographers today. I like to shoot high speed prime lenses. That should no longer be a secret to the people who follow this blog. Ever since I started going “collectors heaven” with the old 50 mm lenses I have been needing ND filters in all shapes and sizes. And trust me on this DON’T BUY VARIABLE ND FILTERS! They will mess up your gorgeous bokeh, and specular highlights! What a variable ND filter really is, is two pieces of polarising glass. One linear, one circular. You twist the filter to offset the polarisation. Polarized at a 90 degree angle, the filter lets in zero light. at 0 degrees it lets in 100% light. (Basic high school physics :-P) What this sadly does is introduce artefacts into your out of focus areas. And before you start saying that this is only true on cheap filter brands… trust me…it’s not! I’ve tried variable ND’s from the following companies, and ALL with no exception show this issue! ......

The story behind this image involves me spending some time with my ageing father doing what we both like doing best… exploring the local town. On a cold January morning, we headed down to the banks of the Yamuna to catch a ferry.

Traveling and editing like a boss with a Fuji X-T1 + iPad & Lightroom mobile /  jaysonoertel | photography | Scoop.it

When Fuji announced the X-T1, I was super excited for the new, upgraded sensor as well as other features such as the ability to use UHS-II SD Cards, the interval timer, and more.  There was one feature that I was indifferent on, until now: built-in wifi on the camera.  Oh yeah, in case you didn’t hear, Adobe recently released Lightroom for mobile.  Yes, you heard that right…Lightroom for mobile!  Let me explain where I’m going with this…

The days of traveling with bulky gear is over.  With my Fujifilm X-T1, I’m now traveling light AND have all the gear I need to shoot, edit, and deliver photos to my client – from the road.
