no ND filter?? wow. Because I always get either a really bright sky or dark dark landscape. :/ let me see then... 100 iso, f8-11, and around 1000 shutter? idk I guess i just need to practice more.. I live in Montana and only if I could take nice sunsets. Thank you!
nope, no ND filters on my shots
if you're referring to a graduated ND filter, those can be really useful at times but I don't use them either.
If I have to, I'll pull an ND grad effect in Post (Lightroom does this nicely if needed).
Sometimes you may need to do an NDG filter, sometimes not.
In my examples above it's just a straight shot as is.
I usually start at 100 iso, 1/500 and f/8 (sunny 16) and adjust as required for the conditions.
MO should have some great sunsets! I used to travel I15 every fall years ago and those dusty skies were sometimes full of color. Good luck!
