Join Anthony Q. Artis for an in-depth discussion in this video Using neutral density (ND) filters to correct overexposure, part of Foundations of Video: Cameras and Shooting.
In this movie I am going to discuss a tool known as the ND Filter.…ND stands for Neutral Density.…Neutral Density Filters are gray or colorless filters that cut down the intensity of the…light in your shot but do not change the actual color of your image.…So it's color neutral.…All it does is reduce the brightness of the image across the board.…In the very simplest terms, I like to think ND Filters as sunglasses for your camera.…Whenever it's too bright out, you should use an ND Filter.…
This means just about anytime you are shooting outside in daylight, you pretty much always…need an ND Filter on a bright sunny day, but believe it or not, you will usually want to…use an ND Filter even on overcast rainy days, because daylight is much brighter than normal…light levels indoors.…That's why the scene outside the window of most interior shots is often overexposed and blown out.…Now ND Filters are commonly built into many dedicated video cameras.…You will usually find the ND Switch on the left side of the camera somewhere near the back of the lens.…
