For this type of photography I like to keep things as light as possible because there’s often a lot of walking involved. And if I’m camping as well as hiking, I even take less kit with me – just the bare essentials. Below you’ll see my most essential kit, which is minimal to say the least. But why carry what you don’t need?
The NiSi Medium Graduated Filter (Medium Nano IR GND) is the latest addition to the NiSi range of drop-in/sheet filters aimed at landscape photographers. It’s designed to fill the gap between the shorter graduation of the NiSi Hard Graduated Filter and the larger graduation of the Soft Graduated Filter.
