Neutral density filters are one of the most important tools in a photographer’s toolkit. They allow a photographer to control the amount of light that reaches the camera sensor. Whether it is a bright sunny day and you want to manage the bright light, or you are photographing water and are looking for that silky smooth look, the neutral density filter can help you achieve the image you are looking for.

We’re chatting with celebrity photographer Manfred Bauman, a dedicated user of PortraitPro software. He shares with us what it’s like to work with some of the biggest stars and what tools he finds helpful in his work.

PortraitPro: What lead you to photographing Hollywood actors?

Manfred Baumann: Sir Roger Moore discovered one of my pictures at an exhibition in Hamburg and bought it for his house in Switzerland. He is a big fan of photography, which is how we got into contact. He was my first Hollywood star, and that got the ball rolling.

I've always loved the natural world and was hiking, backpacking, and adventuring outdoors long before I first picked up a camera. Simply put, there's a lot of natural beauty in this world: It inspires me, and I've made it my mission in life to share that beauty with others.

Often that person either hasn’t the skill, or the time, or the inclination to scan and share more than just a few of the treasures. If things were perfect, thousands of family images would be available online for all family members to share. Instead, it’s usually one relative who has boxes and albums and envelopes full of all sorts and sizes of photos, all passed down—and in reality—passed over. Press the button and forget the rest.
