  1. thanks for this very well explained refresher on grads. I too come from a film background and appreciate how much easier digital is in the sense you can see your image at the point of capture and adjust if necessary. I'm also a believer in getting the shot correct on location instead of how some shoot with the assertion every image can be post-processed to perfection. I prefer being out shooting not in front of a monitor editing.

  2. I find the whole concept completely pointless. Modern cameras have sooo much dynamic range three is zero need to introduce unnatural color cast and a piece of plastic in front of the lens.

  3. Just starting to learn photography. To start the first method, in order to see those readings and change the shutter speed, you set your camera to Manual or Tv? Sorry for this elementary question. Thank you for your videos.

  4. Great tutorial Mr. Jullian, I'm beginner although I've started photography 4 years back and stucked much with landscape photography but recently I've found highly informative video about metering and calculating the difference in exposure , now a days I'm in Salalah (sultanate of Oman) they've got incredible landscape scenery here at this time of year misty hilly topography and plenty of water falls I personally highly recommend it for every photographer in the world .

  5. How did you determine the 1/50th shutter speed? Did the camera calculate the shutter speed because you are in aperture priority mode?

  6. Very clear, easy to understand and well-placed. i am totally agree ….they’re not giving you all of the information you need to choose the correct density. thank you so much for the value information.

  7. Hello i find your tutorial very helpful and have subscribed . But can you kindly explain how and why you're counting the shutter speed from 8th of second to 15th of a second to 30th of a second to the 60th of a second

  8. A great explanation of a complex and baffling topic. Just purchased some graduation filters and was wondering how best to try them. Thank you for sharing .

  9. great explanation, before i found your video, the most common answer i get is "you use it creatively" and truly it teach me nothing.

    My question is can i use sunny 16 rules here?

  10. Just starting with landscape photography and I realize now what a challenge it is to do it the right way. Your calm and excellent explanation gives me a perfect start. Thank you for that Julian.

  11. Thank you, for the excellent and intelligent explanation. A friend shared this video. I have always struggled and shy away from using nd filter in my kit. This most useful video suggestions will come in very handy.

    Thank you, Julian.

  12. the part about using a 1 stop grad and compensating two stops for white clouds was the money shot of the video.

  13. Found this tut via the Talk Photography forums! Very well exampled tutorial far better than some of the other guff out there! sub'd

  14. I don't wish to be presumptive but,….it's called a 'Graduated Neutral Density Filter'. Julian appeared to be getting these 4 words a little mixed up….confusing to the un-initiated!!
