In conditions of extreme light intensity, such as sunshine on snowy mountains or on the beach, Neutral Density filters are recommended as essential. Also wider apertures can be selected, which is perfect for portraiture to reduce depth of field - subject appears crisp and clear while the background becomes a soft blur. They are also widely used for photographs of waterfalls and other nature scenes to emphasize movement.
Neutral Density filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film or image sensor. The ND8 reduces light transmission by 3 stops.
