"I don’t like to leave anything to chance, so I plan everything as meticulously as possible. I want to be able to capture my images in a single take, and for them to look exactly as I visualised. That’s where LEE ND grads come in. They blend sky and land seamlessly, allowing me to create the perfect balance in camera, with no need for postproduction."

Karl Taylor's graduated filter kit includes the three ND grad filters Karl keeps in his camera bag. A graduated neutral-density filter, or ND grad filter is used to balance the exposure within a scene, such as between a bright sky and a darker land.

The graduated filter allows part of the image to be modified and when held in the Foundation Kit filter holder the filter can be slid in and out and rotated allowing you to carefully control the area of the image being modified giving you complete creative control.

All the ND Grad filters are hand made by the skilled team at Lee Filters where they gradually build up the ND gradation by dipping optically correct resin in baths of dye and continuously monitoring the results. Each filter represents up to an hour of skilled work.

The Neutral Density Graduated Filter Kit Includes:

1 x Foundation Kit

The foundation kit filter holder takes standard 100mm filters, and can be constructed to take up to three filters at any one time. The foundation kit clips onto the adapter ring which, in turn, screws onto your camera's lens

1 x 0.9 ND Hard Grad

The 0.9 ND hard graduation filter reduces exposure by 3 stops without affecting colour balance. It is perfect for horizons, or any hard transition between the sky and land. Gives great control over the exposure.

1 x 0.9 ND Soft Grad

The 0.9 ND soft graduation filter reduces exposure by 3 stops without affecting colour balance, gently balances exposure when there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, for instance woodland, mist & interiors.

1 x 1.2 ND Soft Grad

The 1.2 ND soft graduation filter reduces exposure by 4 stops without affecting colour balance.

1 x Triple Filter Wrap

Soft protective cloth filter holder to protect your filters

1 x Cleaning Cloth

A high quality cleaning cloth which can be used either dry or with the cleaning solution.

3 x Lens Caps

The lens cap allows you to leave the adaptor ring attached at all times while keeping the front element clean and safe. The lens cap is made of white polypropylene and, when attached, can be used to white balance a digital SLR, or as a makeshift incident lightmeter on any camera. They can also be written on to identify lenses in the camera bag.
