Photo Hints About Coloured Photo Filters That'll Take Your Landscape Photography To The Next Level!
Today's photo tips are about colored photo filters which you must have in your camera bag at all times. And the best way to avoid losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting arsenal is an easy way to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - What is a good way to put away your photo filters so that they're readily available?
They take up a lot of room in your camera bag if you maintain them in their own original packaging. Room that 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's not much of a problem until the day you forget to put them back. It could cost you quite lots of cash - and save the next photographer that shoots from that location a package.

Here's what you do... buy a zip close CD/DVD case. Link it to your camera bag, and you won't ever lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by simply flipping through the pages, you may see the filters and pick out the one you want to utilize! My case is created by Case Logic and has really been storing my filters for years. In the event you need one, they make camera cases also.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and do not purchase them.
The very next instance you're watching television - or visit the movies, discover the colors on the display. Especially pay attention to when the scene is imagined to represent morning or dusk. Frequently, the colours you see are not natural and were inserted by coloured filters.
You never notice the filter effect if done correctly; you only accept the scene as being shot at that time of day.
Occasionally, the director may need something more edgy and lets the colored filters become clear and not seamlessly blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you need to view 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 then again, they are making the big bucks and I am not, so my view is most likely wrong.
In our photography, a general color wash like that is readily executed in Photoshop with one or two clicks.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I counsel you to save your money and not purchase solid color filters.
What I advocate is that you get a couple of typically the most popular split filters. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later determine on densities and different colors.
A split filter is one that is clear at the bottom and coloured in the top. The dividing line could be sharp, or a gradual fade. (I recommend a gradual fade.)
This is used to color the sky without changing the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while in the same time it's more challenging and time consuming to replicate in Photoshop. Especially with a slow fade.
It is worth having them in your arsenal and spending a couple of bucks.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a new level and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo suggestion can set you besides the gang and help you begin winning photo competitions.
