With digital photography taking over the photo world, too a lot of us are using a point and shoot - camera on automatic - approach. Since there are no film development costs, we will fire off hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we will get one good one.
Too frequently, we don't. This process has drastically reduced the photography skill set during the last few years and it is going to get even worse.
Instead of learn to be amazing photographers, we're learning to be great at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I have nothing against Photoshop, but it ought to be utilized as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
Among the 'tweaks' we will often use Photoshop to insert is the effect of filters.
Photoshop is very good at that in the event that you merely need a color wash across the full image!
But there are a couple of filters where it is best 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 seamlessly add them.
UV filters, polarizers and neutral density filters.

Polarizers, remove glare from shiny things, and give us far better heavens. It is challenging to imagine shooting at an outside photo without one.

Where to keep your rubber band?
It's possible for you to keep one in your camera bag therefore it is always helpful, but here is an even better alternative - wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.
