Photo Tips About Colored Photo Filters That Will Take Your Landscape Photography To The Next Level!
Today's photo hints are about coloured photo filters that you ought to have in your camera bag at all times. And the best way to avoid losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting armory is a good way to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Just what is a great way so that they're easily obtainable to store your photo filters?
They take up a lot of room in your camera bag, if you keep them within their original packaging. Room that could be better put to utilize for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) and so on. 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 is not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It might cost you quite a lot of money - and save the following photographer that shoots from that place a package.

Here's what you do... buy 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! 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 - Colored Filters. Purchase them and don't buy them.
The next time you are viewing television - or go to the pictures, discover the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is imagined to represent twilight or dawn. Frequently, colored filters aren't natural and added the colors you see.
The filter effect is never noticed by you if done properly; you only accept the scene as being shot at that time of day.
Occasionally, the manager may need something more edgy and lets not and the colored filters become clear blend in.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you need to view a blatant use of coloured filters have a look at that one. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, also it detracts from the show.

However then again, they're making the big bucks and I am not, so my view is probably erroneous.
Like that's readily accomplished with one or two clicks in Photoshop, in our photography, a general color wash.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I advocate is the fact that you get a couple 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 other shades.
A split filter is one that is coloured in the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line could be a gradual fade, or sharp. (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 challenging and time consuming to replicate in Photoshop. Especially with a gradual fade.
It is worth spending a few bucks and having them in your arsenal.
Adding colored photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a new level and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo hint can set you besides the crowd and help you begin winning photo competitions.
