Neutral Density Filters - ND Grads A Neutral Density Graduated filter (also known as an ND Grad) is very similar to a Neutral Density filter but has one major difference. Instead of covering the whole filter and therefore affecting the whole of the image and exposure, it will run from a clear filter and gently fade into a neutral density, allowing only part of the image to be affected. ND Grads are used primarily to control the exposure between the foreground and sky of an image. Usually the sky will be the brightest part of the image and the foreground the darkest. Joe McNally’s Blog We celebrated Earth Day this past week. This observance has been around for a while now, and back in the 70′s I was occasionally assigned to cover some of the events. I shot the above for UPI one year, at an Earth Day observance at the UN. I recall it being the usual, uh, cluster….k, in NY press terminology, with all the papers, the wires, and the TV folks angling for angles and exclusives.

Seeing in photography a way to explore philosophical discussions in a more accessible way, he completed the Documentary Photography course at Newport, South Wales, and embarked on a career as a photojournalist. Since 1994, he’s described himself as a landscape photographer rather than a photojournalist. He continues to produce photographic images for the New York Times Magazine and the Guardian Weekend magazine. His work is held in both private and public institutions worldwide, including The Getty Museum, Los Angeles, the Hayward Gallery, London, and the British Council Collection.

MadelineTonks - Contemporary Photography: Artist Research - Simon Norfolk Simon Norfolk Simon Norfolk was born in 1963 in Nigeria. He attended Oxford and Bristol universities and left with a degree of sociology and philosophy. Simon Norfolk " ...is studying war, and its effects on many things: the physical shape of our cities and natural environments, social memory, the psychology of societies, and more." "He is examining genocide; imperialism; the interconnectedness of war, land and military space; and how wars are being fought at the same time with supercomputers, satellites, outdated weapons and equipment, people on the ground, intercepted communications, and manipulated and manipulating media." Simon Norfolk: "What these "landscapes" have in common – their fundamental basis in war – is always downplayed in our society."

I say this safe in the knowledge that my joiners are some of the biggest photos in the world! I know, I know, billboards feature massive photographs, however, the photos which appear on billboards have been blown-up to enable them to be that size. Most of these photos if they were printed at a 1:1 ratio would be a lot, lot smaller (the biggest would be around A2 size). And if you don’t believe me, go find your local billboard, press your nose right up close to the photo, and tell me that it’s not an indiscernible mess! My joiners however are natively massive, they don’t need blowing up as they’re already on a scale which rivals the size seen on billboards.
