Photo Tips About Colored Photo Filters That Can Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Today's photo tips are about coloured photo filters that you need to have in your camera bag at all times. And the best way to avoid losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting toolbox is a good way to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Exactly what is a great way to put away your photo filters in order they are easily obtainable?
They take up lots of room in your camera bag, should you maintain them within their own 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't really tell what the filter is unless you take them all outside.
That's not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It may cost you quite lots of money - and save the next photographer that shoots from that location a package.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip shut CD/DVD case. Connect it to your camera bag, and you won't ever lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by just flipping through the pages, you pick the one you want to utilize out and may see the filters! My case is made by Case Logic and has really been keeping my filters for a long time. If you need one camera cases are made by them too.
Photo Hint #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and don't buy them.
The very next instance you're watching television - or go to the movies, discover the colors on the display. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is supposed to depict dusk or morning. Frequently, colored filters are not natural and introduced the colors you see.
If done correctly, you never notice the filter effect; you just accept the scene as being shot at that time of day.
Sometimes, the manager may need something more edgy and lets the coloured filters become obvious and not blend in.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Have a look at that one if you need to view a clear utilization of coloured filters. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, and it detracts from the show.

But on the other hand, they're making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is probably wrong.
In our photography, an overall color wash like that is easily executed in Photoshop with a couple of clicks.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I DO 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 decide on densities and other shades.
A split filter is one that is coloured at the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line may be sharp, or a gradual fade. (I advocate a gradual fade.)
This really 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's more difficult and time consuming to repeat in Photoshop. Particularly with a slow fade.
It is worth having them in your arsenal and spending a few dollars.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new level and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo tip help you start winning photo contests and can set you besides the group.
