2 Photo Tips To Enhance Your Landscape Photography!
Here are two photo suggestions that can instantly boost your landscape photography - or some outdoor pictures - to a whole new level. Use filters and rubber bands!
Photo Tip #1... Use filters in your photography!
Filters are an indispensable addition to any quality photo and they are used by most top shooters on virtually 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'll fire away hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we'll get one great one, since there are no film development costs.
Too often, we do not. The photography skill set during the past few years has been dramatically reduced by this process and it's going to get even worse.
Instead of learn to be great photographers, we are learning to be amazing at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I 've nothing against Photoshop, but nevertheless, it should be utilized as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
Among the 'tweaks' we will frequently use Photoshop to insert is the effect of filters.
Should you simply want a color wash across the whole image Photoshop is excellent at that!
However there are a few filters where it's best to have them on your lens rather than attempt to add the effect later. You can spend hundreds of hours on each and every 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 protect your lens from scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you need the sharpest images. Polarizers, remove glare from shiny items, and give us far better heavens. It is difficult to picture shooting at an outside photo without one. And we are given increased control over shutter speed and so on by neutral density filters.
The very best shooters would not dream of not having these filters in their camera bag. But sometimes there may be a problem.
Photo Hint #2... Keep A Rubber Band Easy!
When you are utilizing filters that screw onto the front of your lens - sooner or later you will run into the issue 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 grip to get it began turning.
Where to keep your rubber band?
It's possible for you to keep one in your camera bag so it's always useful, 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 own pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it almost impossible for a pick pocket to get the wallet from your pocket! Try it; you'll see what I mean!
There's less protection if you keep your wallet in a purse, but it still makes it harder to get the wallet from the bag surreptitiously.
