Graduated Neutral Density Filter

A graduated neutral density (ND) filter is a type of photographic filter that is darker on one end and gradually becomes lighter towards the other end. It is used to balance the exposure of a scene with a bright sky and darker foreground, such as a landscape shot. By placing the darker end of the filter over the sky, it reduces the amount of light entering the lens, allowing for a properly exposed foreground.
