The sun is in full view above the horizon and detail is hard to maintain in all areas of the scene. You want to capture a sharp sun star but highlights are at their brightest and shadows are deep. Reverse Grad allows you to maintain shadow detail while capturing a sharp sun star and detail in the clouds. Because the gradation is reverse it gives you a more natural graduated look that a standard grad cannot provide.
Reverse Grads are the prefect filter for shooting sunrises and sunsets where the sun is in full view above the horizon. By setting the darkest part of the filter in the middle of filter and letting it fade to up into the sky you create a natural graduated look and better exposure control in the areas that need it most. This is classified a Hard-stop at the horizon that fades up to clear at the top.
NUANCES Graduated Neutral Density (GND) filters are dedicated to landscape photography. When the dynamic range of film or sensor is too narrow, they allow to balance brightness between two parts of an image by efficiently keeping details in the highlights while exposing for the shadows of a scene. GND filters effect cannot be reproduced in post‑processing, where clipping is hard to recover. The transition between the dark and light areas is soft, making it easier to use in most situations.
NUANCES GND filters have been designed to fit our range of CREATIVE filter-holders, from M to XL sizes. NUANCES GND filters can be combined with other filters from the CREATIVE Filter System range for unlimited creativity.
