The Lee ND Grad Hard Resin Filter Set can be used with both digital and film cameras. The set contains three 100 x 150mm hard ND graduated resin filters that enable the photographer to adjust exposure over part of a scene without effecting colour balance. Exposure can be controlled by 1, 2 or 3 stops with the included 0.3, 0.6 and 0.9 ND Grad filters. For example, when photographing a landscape in which the sky is much brighter than the foreground, placing the Neutral Density part (darker area) of the filter onto the sky in the frame will reduce the sky exposure without affecting the foreground. This enables cloud detail to be kept correctly exposed and avoids the "white out" effect caused by exposing for the foreground. Hard Grads would be used for images containing a horizon, or any hard transition between the sky and the foreground - even with jagged or mountainous horizon. This filter set is for use with the Lee 100mm Filter Holder. Filter Holder and Adapter Rings not included.

Should I use hard or soft grads?
This depends on: the type of photography, the type of equipment, and the requirements of an individual situation. There is no simple answer, most professionals will carry a selection of both. Hard Grads tend to be used on smaller format cameras (DSLR or 35mm) and are used for general landscape shots with a definite horizon. Soft Grads tend be used on larger format cameras or on very wide angle lenses and are used for balancing exposure evenly, when there is no definite horizon i.e. in cities or other situations when you may have an uneven skyline.

Compatible with both digital and film photography
Whatever format you shoot, ND Grads help cameras record scenes more like we see them - with a broad tonal range that's lost if not captured in the moment.

Precise creative control
There is a place in landscape photography for both hard and soft grads. Which one you decide to use will depend mainly on the subject matter of your image.

As a general rule, a hard grad would be used for images containing a horizon, or any hard transition between the sky and the foreground - even with jagged or mountainous horizons, the exposure can be controlled far easier with a hard grad.

Soft grads perform best in woodland, mist, or interiors. Anywhere where there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, a soft grad will gently balance exposure across the image.
