USING THE RIGHT TOOLS - VARIABLE ND FILTER IN THE BAG

When traveling to a new location far from home, you frequently find your only opportunity for a photograph is during less than ideal lighting conditions.  This is especially a challenge when photographing water.  I was wanting to shoot a waterfall or cascades while visiting family in Upper Peninsula of Michigan and my brother-in-law was eager to take me to a few locations that sounded good.

Unfortunately, it was late afternoon with clear skies.  How do you tell your volunteer guide, "No, this isn't the best time."  So I grabbed camera bag and off we went.  The location was fantastic but the bright skies were terrible on the water.  My 8-stop ND filter came to the rescue.  Low ISO, high aperture, and ND filter.  Got the silky water I wanted.  Nailed it.
