This ND8 filter reduces the amount of light entering the lens by 3 stops, so wider apertures can be selected, which is perfect for portraiture to reduce depth of field. Subject appears crisp and clear while the background becomes a soft blur. Also widely used for photographs of waterfalls and other nature scenes to emphasize movement. This particular filter (HMC) is multi-coated to minimize reflection on the filter surface which reduces flare and ghosting and produces sharp contrast and well-balanced color. An ND8 filter reduces the amount of light by 3 stops. When to use a Neutral Density Filter: To enable slow shutter speeds to be used to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls clouds cars etc. To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used which helps separate subjects from their background. To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (ie: above ISO400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations. To allow video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow sand or other bright scenes which would normally cause overexposure.
