Photo Tips About Coloured Photo Filters Which Will Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Today's photo suggestions are about colored photo filters which you must 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 strategy to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo hint #1 - Just what is a great way so they are easily obtainable to store your photo filters?
They take up lots of room in your camera bag, if you keep them within their own original packaging. Room that could be better put to utilize for extra batteries, memory sticks (film?) and so on. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can't really 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 great deal of money - and save the following photographer that shoots from that location a package.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip close CD/DVD case. Connect 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 pick out the one you need to use and may see the filters! Case Logic makes my case and has been keeping my filters for a long time. In case you need one camera cases are made by them too.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Purchase them and don't purchase them.
The next time you're watching television - or go to the films, see the colors on the monitor. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent dusk or dawn. Often, the colours you see are not natural and were inserted by coloured filters.
The filter effect is never noticed by you if done correctly; the scene is only accepted by you as being shot at that time of day.
Sometimes, the director may desire something more edgy and lets not and the colored filters become evident blend in.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Have a look at that one if you want to see a clear utilization of colored 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'm not, so my opinion is most likely erroneous.
Like that's readily executed in Photoshop with a couple of clicks, in our photography, a general color wash.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I recommend is that you get a few of the most popular split filters. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later decide on densities and other colors.
A split filter is one that is coloured in the top and clear in the bottom. The dividing line could be a slow fade, or sharp. (I advocate a gradual fade.)
This is used to color the sky without impacting the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while in the same time it is more difficult and time consuming to duplicate in Photoshop. Particularly with a gradual fade.
It's worth spending a couple of dollars and having them in your toolbox.
Adding colored photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new amount and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo tip help you start winning photo contests and can set you apart from the crowd.
