Photo Hints About Colored Photo Filters That Can Take Your Landscape Photography To The Next Level!
Today's photo tricks are about coloured photo filters which you ought to have in your camera bag at all times. And the best way to prevent losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your arsenal that is shooting is a good solution to get dramatically better landscape photography!
Photo hint #1 - What's a good way to put away your photo filters so they are readily available?
They take up a lot of room in your camera bag should you maintain them within their original packaging. Room which could be better put to use for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) And so forth. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can not really tell what the filter is unless you take them all outside.
That is not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It could cost you quite a lot of cash - and save the next photographer that shoots from that location a bundle.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip shut CD/DVD case. Link it to your camera bag, and you'll never lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by merely flipping through the pages, you can see the filters and pick the one you want to utilize out! Case Logic makes my case and has really been storing my filters for a long time. They make camera cases also in the event that you need one.
Photo Hint #2 - Coloured Filters. Purchase them and don't buy them.
The very next instance you are viewing television - or visit the films, discover the colors on the monitor. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent twilight or morning. Frequently, the colors you see are not natural and were introduced by colored filters.
You can't notice the filter effect if done properly; you merely accept the scene as being shot at that time of day.
Sometimes, the director may need something edgy and lets the colored filters become evident and not blend in.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you want to see a blatant utilization of colored filters take a look at that one. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, and it detracts from the show.

But on the other hand, they are making the big bucks and I am not, so my view is most likely incorrect.
Like that's easily executed in Photoshop with one or two clicks, in our photography, an overall color wash.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money , not purchase solid color filters.
What I advocate is that you get a few of the most popular split filters. At least get some tobacco ones and some pink ones. You can later determine on densities as well as different colors.
A split filter is one that's clear in the bottom and coloured in the top. The dividing line may be sharp, or a slow fade. (I recommend a gradual fade.)
This is used to color the sky without affecting the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while at exactly the same time it is more difficult and time consuming to replicate in Photoshop. Particularly with a slow fade.
It is 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 level and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo trick help you begin winning photo competitions and can set you besides the crowd.
