2 Photo Tips To Enhance Your Landscape Photography!
Here are two photo suggestions that can immediately raise 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 essential addition to any quality photo and they are used by most top shooters 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 - approach. We will fire off hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we'll get one good one since there are no film development costs.
Too frequently, we do not. This approach has drastically reduced the photography skill set over the previous couple of years 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 've nothing against Photoshop, but it should be utilized as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
Among the 'tweaks' we will frequently use Photoshop to add is the effect of filters.
Should you simply want a color wash across the whole image, Photoshop is excellent at that!
But there are a number of filters where it is best to have them on your lens rather than attempt to add the effect afterwards. You can spend hundreds of hours on each and every photo striving to seamlessly add them.
UV filters, polarizers and neutral density filters.
These filters are a MUST HAVE for any camera bag! The UV filter will help protect your lens from scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you need the sharpest pictures. Polarizers, remove glare from shiny items, and give us far better heavens. It's difficult to picture shooting an outside photo without one. And neutral density filters give us increased control over shutter speed and so on.
The most effective shots wouldn't dream of not having these filters in their camera bag. But sometimes there can be an issue.
Photo Tip #2... Keep A Rubber Band Easy!
When you are employing filters that screw on the very front of your lens - sooner or later you will run into the difficulty of wanting to remove it, but it will not 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 grasp to get it began turning.
Where to keep your rubber band?
You can keep one in your camera bag so it is always useful, but here is an even better alternative - wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.
Should you keep your wallet in your pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it virtually impossible for a pick-pocket to get the wallet from your pocket! Try it; you will see what I mean!
There is less protection if you maintain your wallet in a bag, but it makes it more difficult to get the wallet out of your bag surreptitiously.
These two simple suggestions - use filters in your photography and keep a rubber band handy in case you can not get off the filter - are merely a couple more methods to take your outside, landscape photography to a whole new level. To find out more, have a look at the resources carton!
