Photo Hints About Colored Photo Filters That Can Take Your Landscape Photography To Another Level!
Today's photo tips are about colored photo filters which you need to have in your camera bag at all times. And the best way to prevent losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting arsenal is an easy way to get drastically better landscape photography!
Photo suggestion #1 - What's a good way to put away your photo filters in order that they are readily available?
They take up a lot of room in your camera bag if you maintain them in their own original packaging. Room that could be better put to use for extra batteries, memory sticks (film?) And so forth. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can't really tell what the filter is unless you take them all outside.
That's not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It may cost you quite a great deal of cash - and save the following photographer that shoots from that location a package.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip close CD/DVD case. Join it to your camera bag, and you'll never lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by merely flipping through the pages, you pick out the one you need to utilize and may see the filters! My case is created by Case Logic and has been keeping my filters for a long time. If you need one camera cases are made by them also.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and don't buy them.
The next instance you're viewing television - or go to the movies, discover the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to depict twilight or dawn. Frequently, the colours you see aren't natural and were introduced by coloured filters.
If done correctly, the filter effect is never noticed by you; as being shot at that time of day you simply accept the scene.
Sometimes, the manager lets not and the colored filters become evident blend in and may need something edgy.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Take a look at that one if you want to see a blatant use of coloured filters. In fact they use them too much, in my opinion, and it detracts from the show.

However on the other hand, they're making the big bucks and I am not, so my view is most likely erroneous.
Like that is easily accomplished in Photoshop with a couple of clicks, in our photography, a general color wash.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money , not purchase solid color filters.
What I DO advocate is the fact that you get a few of the most popular split filters. Get some tobacco ones and some pink ones. You can later decide on densities and different colors.
A split filter is one that's colored at the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line may be a slow fade, or sharp. (I advocate a gradual fade.)
This really is used to color the sky without affecting the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while in exactly the same time it is more challenging and time consuming to repeat in Photoshop. Especially with a slow fade.
It's worth spending a couple of 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 give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo hint help you start winning photo contests and can set you besides the crowd.
