Wildflower explosion. Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT. 4-stop Reverse Grad ND
"Several weeks ago, I left my house in a hurry in hopes of capturing some late-light images up a local canyon here. Don’t you fret—I was fully clothed! I arrived at the location and began setting up my equipment.
"Suddenly I was flabbergasted to realize I’d forgotten my filter pouch. All of a sudden, I felt incredibly naked. No…worse. I felt…powerless. Not a good feeling.
"Sure, there are a few alternative techniques to simulate some effects of filters out there; but for my workflow, and my preference, I simply did not feel comfortable without my most trusted tools for capturing dynamic imagery -- my Singh-Ray Graduated Neutral Density filters. I couldn’t recall the last time I actually had to consider shooting without my ND Grad filters, but it very suddenly dawned on me just how integral they are to helping me do what I do.
