Photo Tips About Colored Photo Filters That'll Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Now's photo hints are about coloured photo filters which you should have in your camera bag at all times. And the way to prevent losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting armory is a good way to get drastically better landscape photography!
Photo suggestion #1 - Exactly what is a good way to store your photo filters in order that they are easily obtainable?
If you maintain them in their own own original packaging, they take up lots of room in your camera bag. Room that could be better put to use for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) and so on. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can't actually tell what the filter is unless you take them all outside.
That's not much of a problem until the day you forget to put them back. It might cost you quite a great deal of money - and save the next photographer that shoots from that place a package.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip close CD/DVD case. Connect 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 may see the filters and pick the one you want to use out! My case is created by Case Logic and has really been storing my filters for a long time. Camera cases are made by them too should you need one.
Photo Tip #2 - Coloured Filters. Buy them and don't buy them.
The next time you are viewing television - or visit the movies, find the colours on the display. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is imagined to depict morning or dusk. Frequently, colored filters are not natural and added the colors you see.
If done properly, you never see the filter effect; you merely accept the scene as being shot at that time of day.
Sometimes, the director may desire something more edgy and lets the coloured filters become evident and not seamlessly blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Have a look at that one if you want to view a clear utilization of colored filters. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, and it detracts from the show.

But then again, they're making the big bucks and I am not, so my opinion is probably erroneous.
Like that's readily executed in Photoshop with one or two clicks, in our photography, an overall color wash.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money , not purchase solid color filters.
What I DO recommend is the fact that you get a couple of the most popular split filters. At least get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later decide on densities and different shades.
A split filter is one that is certainly colored in the top and clear in the bottom. The dividing line could be a slow fade, or sharp. (I advocate a slow 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 difficult and time consuming to repeat in Photoshop. Especially 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 give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo hint help you begin winning photo competitions and can set you apart from the group.
