  1. Hello Karl! How did you get the water to be almost misty? There are no sharp details in the water.

  2. Another great tutorial with brilliant shots! With the LEE system can I use a Grad ND with the non-100×100 CIRCULAR polarizer (LEE100) that fits into the LEE100 holder? Thanks for the education!


    1. Hi Paulo, this one looks like a two but you can convert them to a three or even four, we have several in the studio with 2, 3 and 4.

  3. Magical place. Certainly learning how the use of grad filters can even up the exposure for more consistent results. Thanks.

    1. Karl always uses the standard 100mm system as the widest he tends to go is the 16-35mm Canon lens or 24mm Hasselblad lens, the SW150 is more for physically wider lenses
