One peace of 10 stop welding glass infront of you lens makes for a $2 ND filter

Wow. That changes things up quite a bit. Was there any PP or was that all the glass? Great photo.

It looks like a two tone gradient filter from PS, but if that's filter.... brilliant! I need to get myself some

Pictures comes out green, like this, ofcause I didnt have the eyemussle cap on so I got the light band on the picture.
But if you shoot raw you can just WB correct it and get correct colours

uh stupid question, where would you buy this? I'm assuming it's from the visor of the headgear welders use?

Anyone wanna buy like $300 worth of Singh Rays?

Any welding supply shop should have welding glass in a wide variety of shades. Even your local Canadian Tire might have a limited supply. The glass is a wear item in welding applications and you have to replace it periodically as it gets damaged - I have a stack of filters left over from my grandfather's days as a welder but I haven't tried them over a lens.

I see they're available here for $2.25/ea: weldingdepot.com

They have a $25 minimum order requirement, but they also have 10 different "shades" to choose from - Shade 5 through 14. Think I might give this a try

This news should send the filter makers into a panic. $25 would give a guy a lifetime supply of filters and a lot of fun to boot.

It's a great idea! I'll give it a try, here in the Netherlands. Just have to find a store where I can get some welding glass.
