It makes the images as if there was an issue with camera motion blur (as seen here below). Scott, did you get the Lee glass ND filters? If not, what brand did you get? Thank you.

EDIT: I just tried with the Lee Little Stopper and have the same issue.

Using hoya and some generics as long as there glass most will do a great job

Thanks Scott. I just tried with a hoya ND16 pro1 digital and the images are sharp! Gonna order ND8 and ND32 (I already have ND16 and 64). Too bad I wasted my money on those VND, even though the reviews on BH were good...

The VND is a good filter, but I think its better for video use then still images.

I don't have sharpness/focus issues anymore with the hoya NDs. Thanks again for the tip Scott!

NP thats what this thread is for.

The night before a shoot i clean all my lens and filters, nothing like a finger print on the glass to screw things up.

Is there a way to shoot this, so that SOOC will only need minor adjustments? I used Maxilite camera left and stripbox with grid on the right, with foam board to bounce some light to bottom badge.

Here is the comparison.

Control your spill. Black cards/foam core will help, but not spilling the light in the first place is better. Grids/flags/cutters so that any extra light doesn't go towards the subject Bigger space helps too so that any light that is spilled lands on objects far away from the light and far away from the subject.

Your fill card for the badge is working against you though. Might need to take that down to a little square mirror, very precisely positioned to give the reflection on the logo.

Thanks Sheldon. I'm about to order some grids for my 7 inch reflectors. I was working in a tight space, and was trying to figure out how to reflect some light without taking half the screen. I never thought about a small mirror, would of been a lot easier. Thanks!

Yep 7" with a 10 degree grid would would work great or you can try snooting the light
