Athabasca ND8 Filter provides a convenient way to maintain exposure control by reducing the amount of light entering the camera by 3 stops. ND8 filter allows for many special effects such as being able to control depth of field by using a wider aperture or create or control motion blur by being able to choose just the right slower shutter speeds for perfect blurring.
This is an especially useful tool when creating motion blur in moving water such as waterfalls, rivers and crashing waves. Other examples of good times to use very slow shutter speeds to create blur are; moving vehicles, trains, cars and congested city traffic; blurred panning effects where the subject, a runner, bicyclist or car is clear but the background around it is blurred from the camera following its movement
Neutral Density filters in general have these main uses:
For best results we recommends using a tripod when photographing with slow shutter speeds.
