Photography may be fun, but taking extraordinary pictures need extraordinary add-ons, which are extraordinarily pricey.

But this hack from DIY photography lets you create your own neutral density (ND) filter for approximately $10, waaaay cheaper than the ready-made filter that costs ~$200.


In case you don’t know, an ND filter reduces the amount of light going into the lens so can capture long exposure images sans the unwanted blur, roughness, and whatnot.

All you need for this DIY filter are a welding glass (see link below), rubber bands, and a piece of cloth.

To create the filter, click on the link above and follow the instructions.
