Photo Tips About Coloured Photo Filters That Can Take Your Landscape Photography To Another Level!
Today's photo tips are about coloured photo filters that you need to have in your camera bag at all times. And the way to avoid losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your arsenal that is shooting is a simple solution to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Exactly what is a good way to put away your photo filters so that they're easily obtainable?
They take up lots of room in your camera bag, if you maintain them inside their 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 is not much of a problem until the day you forget to put them back. It may cost you quite lots of cash - and save the next photographer that shoots from that place a package.

Here's what you do... buy a zip close CD/DVD case. Link it to your camera bag, and you won't ever lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by just flipping through the pages, you may see the filters and pick out the one you need to utilize! My case has been storing my filters for years and is created by Case Logic. In the event you need one, camera cases are made by them too.
Photo Hint #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and do not purchase them.
The very next instance you are watching television - or visit the pictures, detect the colours on the screen. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is imagined to depict twilight or dawn. Often, the colours you see aren't natural and were inserted by colored filters.
If done correctly, the filter effect is never noticed by you; the scene is merely 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 evident and not seamlessly blend in.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you want to view a clear utilization of colored filters, take a look at that one. In fact they use them too much, in my opinion, and it detracts from the show.

But on the other hand, they're making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is probably incorrect.
In our photography, an overall color wash like that is readily accomplished in Photoshop with a couple of clicks.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I counsel you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I DO advocate is that you get a few of typically the most popular split filters. Get some tobacco ones and some pink ones. You can later determine on other shades and densities.
A split filter is one that's clear at the bottom and colored at the top. The dividing line could be a gradual fade, or sharp. (I advocate a slow fade.)
This really is used to color the sky without changing the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while at exactly the same time it's more difficult and time consuming to reproduce in Photoshop. Particularly with a slow fade.
It is worth having them in your toolbox and spending a couple of bucks.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new level and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo trick can set you apart from the gang and help you start winning photo contests.
