Graduated Neutral Density Filter, also called as Grad ND filter is one which has got two halves. The first half of this filter will be a neutral density one and the second half will be a clear section. The main purpose of such a filter is to overlay the bright part of the picture scene into the dynamic range of the sensor. It is one of the favorite filters of Landscape photographers. Graduated Neutral Density Filter is mainly used to correctly expose the brighter part of the picture scene, especially the sky. Thus helps to expose picture correctly. They are available in different shapes and sizes.

Let us see what are the “ABC” in photography. They are nothing but the three basic parameters which every camera will have. They are Aperture, Shutter speed, and ISO, as shown in the figure. An image is formed as a result of these three parameters. These 3 parameters together make the Exposure triangle. Nowadays, most of the digital cameras/point and shoot cameras will give you access to control these three parameters. A Digital SLR camera would help you to gain a better control over these.
The zoo is one of the best places to start practicing wildlife photography. There are many challenges you will face while trying to get that perfect shot. The biggest hurdle will be the enclosures or cages in which animals are kept in. The cages differ from one zoo to another. In some zoos, animals like deers, bears, and monkeys are kept in cages made of strong wire meshes, and in other places, metal-barred enclosures are used. The important thing to note here is the size of the opening in the mesh. You will have a hard time if the opening is very small. Nowadays, most zoos replicate the natural surroundings of the animals inside their enclosures. This will help you in getting better pictures.
