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

Here's what you do... purchase a zip close CD/DVD case. Join 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 can see the filters and pick the one you need to utilize out! Case Logic makes my case and has been keeping my filters for a long time. Should you need one, they make camera cases also.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Purchase them and do not buy them.
The next time you are watching television - or go to the films, find the colours on the screen. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is imagined to depict dawn or dusk. Frequently, the colors you see are not natural and were introduced by colored filters.
If done properly, you never notice the filter effect; as being shot at that time of day, you just accept the scene.
Sometimes, the manager lets not and the coloured filters become clear seamlessly blend in and may desire something more edgy.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you need to see a clear use of coloured filters, have a look at that one. In fact they use them in my opinion, and it detracts from the show.

But then again, they're making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is most likely incorrect.
Like that's readily executed with one or two clicks in Photoshop in our photography, a general color wash.
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. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later determine on other colors as well as densities.
A split filter is one that is certainly clear at the bottom and colored in the top. The dividing line may be sharp, or a gradual fade. (I recommend a slow fade.)
This is used to color the sky without changing 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 repeat in Photoshop. Particularly with a gradual fade.
It's 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 brand new amount and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo tip can set you besides the gang and help you begin winning photo contests.
