NiSi Neutral Density Filters
ND Filters are used to slow the shutter and extend exposure time for a variety of special effects.
Slow down and blur water movement for an ethereal effect, create misty looking water for sea water around rocks, give water a flat mirror like effect, and capture dramatic cloud movement.
All NiSi ND filters are Nano coated and incorporate IR-Technology for accurate colour rendition. Light is transmitted evenly removing vignetting from light fall-off and each filter has gaskets to the rear to prevent light leaks.
Available from 2 to 15 stops.
Lumsdale Falls-Phil Norton Photography
IRND8 3 Stop ND
For this image Phil Norton wanted to create an ethereal almost dreamy atmosphere suiting the location and Autumn season.
“Normally I shoot waterfalls with more detail in the water, a CPL in low light like this is usually enough. I wanted the image to be more surreal given the way the eye is lead into the image to the waterfall at the back, and the rich earthy tones.
I chose the NiSi IRND8 3 Stop ND, which slowed the water down to get the effect I wanted. The Landscape Polariser boosted the contrast and colour and removed the reflections from the wet rocks.”

Alun creates drama with the movement of the sea in this image of Perch Rock, Dorset.
“I had a good idea of the image I wanted to create when I arrived on location at Perch Rock. The light just before sunset was perfect with stunning side light illuminating the rocks and the sea.
I wanted to create a sense of movement and retain texture in the water, without making it too flat. With bright light the NiSi 6 stop ND was perfect.
A few test shots and I found the balance I wanted, the rest was down to timing.”

Reflections – Raymond McBride
IRND1000 10 Stop
Stillness and tranquility captured by Raymond at Meols, The Wirral.
“I have shot the boats here at Meols many times and have got to know the location very well, it’s important to know the light and the tides.
On this day the angle and line of the two boats was perfect, I knew there was an unusual shot there to create. I wanted to make sure there was absolutely no movement in the water for a mirror flatness, even though it was relatively still. The boats were resting on the sand so there would be no movement from a long exposure. The choice was the NiSi 10 stop ND giving a 40 second exposure, combined with a Soft Graduated to control the sky. “
