2 Photo Ideas To Improve Your Landscape Photography!
Here are two photo tips that can quickly raise your landscape photography - or any outdoor photos - to an entirely new level. Use filters and rubber bands!
Photo Tip #1... Use filters in your photography!
Filters are an essential addition to any quality photo and most top shooters use them on almost every shot!
With digital photography taking over the photo world, too a lot of us are using a point and shoot - camera on automatic - approach. We will fire away hundreds or even tens of thousands of shots in the hopes that we'll get one good one, since there are no film development costs.
Too frequently, we do not. This approach has dramatically reduced the photography skill set during the previous couple of years and it's going to get even worse.
Instead of learn to be excellent photographers, we are learning to be amazing at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I 've nothing against Photoshop, but it should be utilized as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
One of the 'tweaks' we will frequently use Photoshop to insert is the effect of filters.
In the event that you simply want a color wash across the full image, Photoshop is excellent at that!
But there are a couple of filters where it's a good idea to have them on your lens rather than attempt to add the effect afterwards. You can spend hundreds of hours on each photo striving to add them.
UV filters, polarizers and neutral density filters.
These filters are a MUST HAVE for any camera bag! The UV filter will help safeguard your lens from scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you want the sharpest pictures. Polarizers, remove glare from shiny objects, and give us far better heavens. It's challenging to envision shooting an outdoor photo without one. And neutral density filters give us increased control over shutter speed and so on.
The most effective shots would not dream of not having these filters in their camera bag. But occasionally there can be an issue.
Photo Hint #2... Keep A Rubber Band Easy!
When you're utilizing filters that screw on the front of your lens - sooner or later you'll run into the dilemma of needing to remove it, but it won't unscrew. It is stuck!
Here's what you do...
Take a rubber band and wrap it around the filter. This will definitely give you enough grasp to get it started turning.
Where to keep your rubber band?
You can keep one in your camera bag therefore it is always handy, but here is a choice that is even better - wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.
If you keep your own wallet in your own pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it virtually impossible for a pick-pocket to get the wallet out of your pocket! Try it; you'll see what I mean!
There is less protection should you keep your own wallet in a bag, but it makes it more difficult to get the wallet out of your bag surreptitiously.
Both of these easy tricks - use filters in your photography and keep a rubber band convenient in the event you can't get the filter off - are only a couple more ways to take your outside, landscape photography to a whole new level. To find out more, check out the resources carton!
