The LEE Filters - Neutral Density Grad Resin Filter 0.9 (HARD Edge) is a professional quality graduated filter with HARD graduation. The HARD graduation is the standard for general landscape work. A 0.9 ND graduated filter reduces the brightness of the sky by 3 stops, foreground exposure is unaffected.
The Lee Filters range of true, neutral density (ND) graduated filters enables the photographer to selectively adjust exposure across the frame without affecting colour balance. ND Grad Filters are truly the essential filter for the landscape photographer. The most common use for ND grad would be to balance the exposure difference between the sky and the foreground, retaining the natural colours and detail without over-exposing and "burning out" part of the image. They are available with a hard or soft graduation.

These filters are manufactured by hand from a durable optical resin. All LEE filters are manufactured with the highest quality, optically pure base materials, and must comply with LEE Filters' strict quality control standards.
