I’ve long known and used ND filters and graduated ND filters in bright light; didn’t realize that you could get some wonderful effects with them in darkness.
The examples in this article (via ) are just outstanding
Like this one of the moon (below).
Here, the “double stacked graduated ND filters” helped bring the brightness of the moon to a level comparable with the foreground.
The takeaway is that ND filters and graduated ND filters can be used in places where there is a huge difference in brightness of the various elements in the photograph.
I have long suspected that this was the case, especially when no one could give a simple explanation why we did this.
- For the farmers
- For the farm animals
- To save energy
Those are just some of the explanations I have heard.
But I get it, in countries that are wide (west to east) you need more time zones. That is the real solution.

“Zooming with your feet” means getting closer to your subject physically instead of relying on a longer lens, but you should be aware that the results you won’t be the same.
