2 Photo Tips To Enhance Your Landscape Photography!
Here are two photo suggestions that can instantly boost your landscape photography - or some outside photos - to an entirely 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 most top shots use them 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. Since there aren't any film development costs, we will fire away hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we'll get one great one.
Too frequently, we do not. The photography skill set over the previous few years has been dramatically reduced by this method and it's going to get even worse.
Instead of learn to be amazing photographers, we are learning to be excellent at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I got nothing against Photoshop, but it should be used as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
Among the 'tweaks' we will often use Photoshop to add is the effect of filters.
Photoshop is very good at that in the event that you merely want a color wash across the entire image!
But there are a number of filters where it's a good idea to have them on your own lens rather than try to add the effect later. You may spend hundreds of hours on each and every photo trying 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 safeguard your lens from scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you want the sharpest images. Polarizers, give us far better heavens, and remove glare from shiny items. It is challenging to imagine shooting at an outside photo without one. And neutral density filters give us increased control over shutter speed and so on.
The top 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 Handy!
If you are using filters that screw on the very front of your lens - sooner or later you'll run into the problem of needing to remove it, but nevertheless, it won't unscrew. It is stuck!
Here's what you do...
Take a rubber band and wrap it around the filter. This will definitely give you 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 is always helpful, but here is a choice that is even better - wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.
If you maintain your wallet in your own pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it virtually impossible for a pickpocket to get the wallet from your pocket! Try it; you will see what I mean!
If you keep your wallet in a purse, there's less protection, but it still makes it harder to get the wallet out of your purse surreptitiously.
Both of these easy tricks - keep a rubber band convenient in the event you can not get off the filter and use filters in your photography - are only a couple more methods to take your outside, landscape photography to a whole new level. For more information, have a look at the resources box!
