Photo Tips About Coloured Photo Filters Which Will Take Your Landscape Photography To The Next Level!
Today's photo suggestions are about coloured photo filters that you need to have in your camera bag at all times. And the way to prevent losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting armory is an easy solution to get dramatically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Exactly what is a good way to put away your photo filters in order that they are easily obtainable?
If you keep them in their original packaging, they take up a lot of room in your camera bag. Room that could be better put to use for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) And so forth. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can not actually tell what the filter is unless you take them all out.
That is not much of a problem until the day you forget to put them back. It could cost you quite a lot of cash - and save the following photographer that shoots from that place a package.

Here's what you do... buy a zip close CD/DVD case. Join it to your camera bag, and you will never lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by just flipping through the pages, you pick out the one you want to use and can see the filters! My case is made by Case Logic and has really been storing my filters for a long time. They make camera cases also if you need one.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Purchase them and do not purchase them.
The next time you're viewing television - or visit the movies, find the colors on the display. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent dusk or morning. Often, the colors you see are not natural and were inserted by coloured filters.
You can't see the filter effect if done properly; the scene is just accepted by you as being shot at that time of day.
Occasionally, the manager may want something more edgy and lets the colored filters become obvious and not blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you want to see a clear utilization of colored filters take a look at that one. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, also it detracts from the show.

However on the other hand, they're making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is probably wrong.
Like that's readily executed in Photoshop with one or two clicks, in our photography, a general color wash.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I counsel you to save your money and not purchase solid color filters.
What I DO advocate is the fact that you get a couple of the most popular split filters. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later decide on densities and other colours.
A split filter is one that is certainly coloured in the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line may be sharp, or a gradual fade. (I recommend a slow fade.)
This is used to color the sky without affecting the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while at exactly the same time it is more challenging and time consuming to reproduce in Photoshop. Particularly with a gradual fade.
It's worth spending a few dollars and having them in your toolbox.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new amount and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo tip help you begin winning photo competitions and can set you besides the group.
