Tutorial to learn how to use bulb mode on a camera
What is bulb mode?
Bulb or pose B mode is a mode that acts on the exposure time without determining it in advance.
It allows you to control the exposure time while shooting. When you press the shutter release button to open the shutter, it will remain open until you release the button.
A tripod or a remote control is mandatory for avoiding motion blurring when in bulb mode, plus pressing the shutter release will be more manageable. Press once to open the shutter. It will close only when you press the button again.
Set the exposure to M (manual) and increase the exposure time to the maximum. After a shutter speed of 30 seconds, the camera will switch to bulb mode.

There are two types of ND filters:
