Photo Hints About Colored Photo Filters That Will Take Your Landscape Photography To Another Level!
Today's photo suggestions are about coloured photo filters which you need to have in your camera bag at all times. And the way to prevent losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting toolbox is an easy way to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Exactly what is a good way so they are easily obtainable to put away your photo filters?
Should you maintain them in their original packaging, they take up a lot of room in your camera bag. Room that could be better put to utilize 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 out.
That's not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It could cost you quite a great deal of money - and save the following photographer that shoots from that location a bundle.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip shut CD/DVD case. Connect it to your camera bag, and you will never lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by merely flipping through the pages, you pick out the one you need to utilize and can see the filters! My case is made by Case Logic and has been storing my filters for a long time. Camera cases are made by them too in the event that you need one.
Photo Hint #2 - Coloured Filters. Buy them and do not buy them.
The next instance you are watching television - or visit the films, discover the colours on the display. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to depict twilight or dawn. Often, coloured filters aren't natural and inserted the colours you see.
The filter effect is never noticed by you if done correctly; as being shot at that time of day you just accept the scene.
Sometimes, the director may want something more edgy and lets the colored filters become clear and not blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you want to view a clear utilization of colored filters, take a look at that one. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, also it detracts from the show.

However on the other hand, they're making the big bucks and I'm not, so my opinion is probably incorrect.
In our photography, an overall color wash like that's easily accomplished in Photoshop with one or two clicks.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money , not purchase solid color filters.
What I DO advocate is the fact that you get a few of the most popular split filters. At least get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later decide on other colours and densities.
A split filter is one that is colored in the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line can be sharp, or a slow 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 exactly the same time it is more difficult and time consuming to repeat in Photoshop. Particularly with a gradual fade.
It's worth spending a few dollars and having them in your arsenal.
Adding colored photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a new amount and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo trick can set you apart from the gang and help you start winning photo contests.
