Variable ND filter

Post by Nathalie on Tue Nov 08, 2016 8:30 pm

Ok so im having problemes figuring out my variable ND filter.   Exemple this image below.. is it because I didnt leave the shutter open long enough... or was the ND filter not ajusted right?  The seller told me that if its not well aligned .. I couldnt get a ''X'' in my picture.  So its that the X factor or shutter not open long enough? Sad

It looks like you tried to take a picture with a lens cap half on. LOL

I know nothing about the X factor except that it sounds confusing and more technical than it needs to be.
I have at least 10 books on photography techniques and none of them ever mentioned the X factor.

Your ISO should always be at the lowest possible 100 (least sensitive to light). f-stop - f/22 for long exposure. Start at 3 stops with the ND filter, just depends how much light there is. Use Aperture priority and it should expose properly for you. That will give you a good idea where to start. It its too bright increase to 4 stop and so on.
You can use the bulb setting, but you want a good idea where to start first by using Aperture Priority. The light changes all the time, so do your adjustments.
Looks like a very underexposed picture.

Good luck!
