The purpose of the solid neutral density filter is to reduce exposure equally across the entire frame. This filter is used mainly in color photography for reducing light levels without altering the color of the image, it can also be used in black & white photography. Most commonly it is used to lengthen shutter speeds in order to blur the movement of clouds, water, or even people. These filters are also a great addition to portraiture photography to increase depth of field. Neutral density filters are particularly useful for compensating for too much light, in circumstances where altering shutter speed, aperture or film speed is not possible or desirable. Lee Neutral density filters have no impact on color balance as they are perfectly neutral.
Resin Filters are made from lightweight, optically correct polymeric materials. This ensures they are durable, easy to handle – and can be wiped clean if sprayed by sea or sand during a shoot.
