A storm is brewing, the sky is filled with angry looking clouds lit from behind by the sun still high in the sky. The earth is dark in anticipation of what is to come and you are there to photograph it. Trying to manage detail in the clouds and the subtle nuances of light on the earth can challenge the best of us and this is where having a Soft Grad in your toolbox comes in handy.
The Soft Grad is darkest at the top of the filter a graduates to a soft transition in the middle. This is perfect for horizon lines that include mountains or buildings so you can set the soft transition on those subjects without it looking like you used a filter to control the exposure in the sky.
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.
