I have seen some amazing B & W long exposure work by #JoelTjintjelaar & #MichelRajkovic.
I am excited to start some early experimentation.
I did not want to splurge on expensive ND filters yet.

I have heard that you can use a circular polarizer and stack it with a linear polarizer. This will give you a variable ND filter with a lot of flexibility.
? quality.

As I already own a circular polarizer the addition of a linear filter is negligible. <$20. It should come in the mail today.

Does anyone have any experience doing this? Any tips?
