Photo Tips About Coloured Photo Filters That'll Take Your Landscape Photography To The Next Level!
Today's photo hints are about colored photo filters that you must have in your camera bag at all times. And how to prevent losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your toolbox that is shooting is an easy method to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo hint #1 - Exactly what is a great way so they are easily obtainable to put away your photo filters?
They take up lots of room in your camera bag should you keep them inside their own original packaging. Room which 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 outside.
That's not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It may cost you quite a great deal of cash - and save the next photographer that shoots from that location a bundle.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip shut CD/DVD case. Link 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 out the one you want to utilize and can see the filters! My case has really been keeping my filters for a long time and is made by Case Logic. In case you need one, camera cases are made by them also.
Photo Hint #2 - Coloured Filters. Purchase them and do not buy them.
The next instance you're viewing television - or visit the movies, see the colours on the screen. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is supposed to represent dusk or morning. Often, the colors you see are not natural and were introduced by coloured filters.
If done properly, you can't see the filter effect; as being shot at that time of day you only accept the scene.
Occasionally, the director lets the coloured filters become apparent and not seamlessly blend in and may desire something more edgy.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Take a look at that one if you want to see a clear utilization of coloured filters. In fact they use them in my opinion, also it detracts from the show.

But on the other hand, they are making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is probably erroneous.
In our photography, an overall color wash like that is readily accomplished with one or two clicks in Photoshop.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I counsel you to save your money and not purchase solid color filters.
What I advocate is that you get a few of the most popular split filters. At least get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later determine on densities and different colours.
A split filter is one that is colored in the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line could 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 at the same time it is more difficult and time consuming to replicate in Photoshop. Particularly with a gradual fade.
It is worth spending a few bucks and having them in your toolbox.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a new level and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo suggestion can set you apart from the gang and assist you to start winning photo contests.
