Here’s a tutorial video showing how I use solid ND filters to capture long exposures in daylight conditions. A couple of key points for long exposures:

  1. Focus and compose before attaching the filters to your lens
  2. Determine the base exposure shutter speed using Aperture-priority mode
  3. Close the eyepiece shutter or use the cover before you shoot
  4. Use Manual exposure and set the shutter speed to “bulb.”
  5. Calculate the long exposure and use a timer to get the exposure right
  6. Use a locking remote release so you don’t have to touch the camera during the exposure
