More on Graduated ND Filters


I was wondering if anyone uses a graduated neutral density filter for black and white landscape shots?

  They come in handy for the same situations for color - when it's early morning and the shape of the land causes the ground to be in shadow but the sky is lit.

  Graduated ND filters work the same for black and white and color, when exposure variances within the scene exceed the limitations of the film's exposure latitude. The thing to remember is that you meter off the shadows (usually the foreground), BEFORE installing the filter.

  I went out tonight with my half neutral density filter. But I metered after I placed the filter. @#@#. Oh well, guess I'll go out tomorrow night and try it again. Thanks for the responses to this question.
