New here so go gently :-)
Right, had a film slr years ago, but kids etc knocked my activities on
Now, got a EOS 400d a few months ago with a 18-55 IS lens and have
joined the local camera club this week.
So, I've been reading "Digital Photography Techniques" and was
interested in the article talking about neutral density filters etc.
for landscape work
Now I know i could buy the screw on circular filters (58mm for this
lens) but that means solid non graduated filters as the lens and filter
all move together.
Hence if i want to use a graduated filter I need to use a filter
holder. However, having never used one (and I don't even have a decent
photo shop nearby to go look at) Im trying to get my head round how
this would work in a practical situation.
Now Im assuming I'd have to screw a ring into the lens (which currently
has a protective UV lens in it) and then the holder clamps onto this?
Then its obviously a case of composing your shot and setting the filter
and holder up so that its lined up properly for your shot.
Am I in the right ball park here?
A lot of things that used to be done with a filter can be done in Photoshop now with digital. Polarizers are different; a polarizer is still beneficial. If you're still interested in cokin filters, here's their website:
