2 Photo Ideas To Enhance Your Landscape Photography!
Here are two photo hints which will instantly boost your landscape photography - or some outdoor photographs - to an entirely new level. Use filters and rubber bands!
Photo Hint #1... Use filters in your photography!
Filters are an indispensable addition to any quality photo and they are used by most top shooters 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 away hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we'll get one good one since there are not any film development costs.
Too frequently, we don't. The photography skill set over the previous few years has been drastically reduced by this procedure and it's going to get even worse.
Rather than learn to be amazing photographers, we're learning to be great at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I got nothing against Photoshop, but nevertheless, it should be utilized as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
One of the 'tweaks' we will often use Photoshop to insert is the effect of filters.
Photoshop is excellent at that should 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 after. You can spend hundreds of hours on each and every photo attempting 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 safeguard your lens from scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you want the sharpest images. Polarizers, remove glare from shiny things, and give us much better skies. It's challenging to envision shooting at an outside photo without one. And neutral density filters give us increased control over shutter speed and so on.
The very best shooters wouldn't dream of not having these filters in their camera bag. But occasionally there can be a problem.
Photo Hint #2... Keep A Rubber Band Easy!
If you are using filters that screw onto the very front of your lens - sooner or later you'll run into the difficulty of wanting 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 grip to get it began turning.
Where to keep your rubber band?
You can keep one in your camera bag therefore it is always convenient, but here is a choice that is even better - wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.
Should you keep your own wallet in your pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it virtually impossible for a pick pocket to get the wallet from your pocket! Try it; you'll see what I mean!
Should you maintain your wallet in a bag, there is less protection, but it makes it more difficult to get the wallet from your purse surreptitiously.
Both of these easy tricks - use filters in your photography and keep a rubber band handy in case you can not get the filter off - are merely a couple more ways to take your outdoor, landscape photography to a whole new level. To learn more, check out the resources carton!
