A little trick I use…

The Nikon 14-24mm lens is a great lens, but it has one MAJOR drawback… because of it’s design it does not take a normal screw in filter. This means that you have to buy a specific filter system for this lens. I have the Lee SW-150 filter kit and it is great, but also has a drawback, they only make ND Grad filters. There are times when I would like a solid ND or a CPL. You can get these if you were to purchase yet another third party filter for this lens, but they usually only make a CPL and ND, not ND grads… so you end up having to spend a stack on additional third party filters, and then having to carry it all around!

I have come up with a way of using 2 ND soft grads to create one 3 stop ND filter. I show you in this video!
