1. Camera (Canon 5D Mark III with EF 24-70mm f2.8L is II USM)
2. Tripod (Manfrotto Befree)
3. ND Filter (Hoya ND32)
The ND32 is a dark neutral density filter with a filter factor of 32, meaning there is 5-stop light loss. This is a great filter for slowing down shutter speeds to capture motion. An example: In daylight, maybe the slowest shutter speed possible without a filter could be 1/60 sec at F/22 By adding the HOYA PRO1 ND 32, a shutter speed of 1/2 sec would be possible.
