You’ve tried to take gorgeous photos in the daytime but find that even if you minimize your ISO and maximize your shutter speed, images taken with a large aperture are overexposed.
What should you do?
It’s easy - invest in a variable neutral density filter! A variable ND filter is like sunglasses for your camera. It restricts the amount of light entering the lens, allowing you to use a large aperture (or a slow shutter speed), even in the brightest daytime conditions.
Variable ND filters are easy to use too - simply screw it onto the end of your lens, and rotate it one way to darken it and the other way to lighten it.
Mark Wallace of Adorama TV goes into detail about how to use a variable ND filter in the video below. See how his portraits immediately improve, simply by adding the filter to his lens.
