Which filters to choose for Long Exposure Photos?

I already shoot Long Exposure Photos some time, I dedicate to this genre of photography in a greater depth than probably most of you so I decided to write this article about my experiences and hardships that I have experienced. When buying a lens is often said that it is difficult to advise, you need to try it and already then you find whether it is good for you or not. For ND filters it does not apply and this article, I hope, will help you to make the right choice and thus save your time as well as considerable funds.

LEE filters for Long Exposure Photography

LEE filters

In the previous article we talked about B+W filters for long exposure photography. You might have noticed that I was using the past tense. It’s because I’m not working with them at the moment and I’m using the LEE filters. I use LEE Big stopper instead in combination with another LEE ND filter. I’ve decided for a change only because I bought a Nikon D800 camera and I’m using a full frame lens Nikon 16-35. This lens belongs to the ultra- wide lens category and I have decided to get a maximum out of the wide end, so I had no choice other than leaving the B+W. If you are novice in this genre of photography, please check my tutorial about how to shoot long epoxusres.
