2 Photo Ideas To Enhance Your Landscape Photography!
Here are two photo suggestions that will immediately boost your landscape photography - or any outside pictures - to an entirely new level. Use filters and rubber bands!
Photo Hint #1... Use filters in your photography!
Filters are an essential addition to any quality photo and most top shots 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 - strategy. We'll fire off hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we will get one good one since there are not any film development costs.
Too often, we don't. The photography skill set over the past few years has been drastically reduced by this procedure and it is going to get even worse.
Instead of learn to be excellent photographers, we're learning to be great at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I 've nothing against Photoshop, but it should be used as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
Among the 'tweaks' we will frequently use Photoshop to add is the effect of filters.
Photoshop is great at that should you simply want a color wash across the entire image!
But there are a few filters where it's best to have them on your own lens rather than try to add the effect afterwards. You can spend hundreds of hours on each and every photo trying to seamlessly add them.
UV filters, polarizers and neutral density filters.
These filters are a MUST HAVE for any camera bag! The UV filter will help protect your lens from scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you want the sharpest pictures. Polarizers, give us much better heavens, and remove glare from shiny things. It's hard to picture shooting an outdoor photo without one. And we are given increased control over shutter speed and so on by neutral density filters.
The most effective shots wouldn't dream of not having these filters in their camera bag. But sometimes there may be a problem.
Photo Hint #2... Keep A Rubber Band Handy!
When you're employing filters that screw on the very front of your lens - sooner or later you will run into the difficulty of needing to remove it, but it won't unscrew. It's stuck!
Here's what you do...
Take a rubber band and wrap it around the filter. This will provide you with enough grasp to get it began turning.
Where to keep your rubber band?
It's possible for you to keep one in your camera bag therefore it is always handy, but here is an even better option - wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.
If you keep your own wallet in your pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it nearly impossible for a pickpocket to get the wallet from your pocket! Try it; you will see what I mean!
Should you maintain your wallet in a purse, there is less protection, but it makes it harder to get the wallet from the purse surreptitiously.
Both of these easy tricks - use filters in your photography and keep a rubber band easy in case you can not get off the filter - are merely a couple more methods to take your outdoor, landscape photography to a whole new level. To learn more, check out the resources box!
