Photo Hints About Colored Photo Filters That'll Take Your Landscape Photography To Another Level!
Today's photo suggestions are about coloured photo filters that you must have in your camera bag at all times. And how to avoid losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting armory is a simple method to get drastically better landscape photography!
Photo suggestion #1 - What is a good way to store your photo filters so that they are easily obtainable?
Should you maintain them in their own original packaging, they take up lots of room in your camera bag. Room which could be better put to utilize for extra batteries, memory sticks (film?) and so on. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can not actually tell what the filter is unless you take them all out.
That is not much of a problem until the day you forget to put them back. It could cost you quite a lot of money - and save the next photographer that shoots from that place a bundle.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip shut CD/DVD case. Join it to your camera bag, and you'll never lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by just flipping through the pages, you can see the filters and pick out the one you want to utilize! My case has been keeping my filters for years and is made by Case Logic. They make camera cases also should you need one.
Photo Hint #2 - Colored Filters. Purchase them and do not buy them.
The very next instance you are viewing television - or go to the pictures, detect the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is imagined to represent dusk or dawn. Often, coloured filters are not natural and inserted the colours you see.
If done properly, the filter effect is never noticed by you; as being shot at that time of day, you just accept the scene.
Sometimes, the manager may desire something more edgy and lets the colored filters become apparent and not blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Take a look at that one if you want to view a clear utilization of coloured filters. In my opinion they use them in fact, and it detracts from the show.

But on the other hand, they are making the big bucks and I'm not, so my opinion is most likely incorrect.
In our photography, an overall color wash like that is easily accomplished with a couple of clicks in Photoshop.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I counsel you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I advocate is that you get a couple of the most popular split filters. At least get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later determine on other shades and densities.
A split filter is one that is certainly colored in the top and clear in the bottom. The dividing line can be a gradual fade, or sharp. (I advocate 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's more difficult and time consuming to repeat in Photoshop. Especially 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 amount and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo tip help you begin winning photo contests and can set you apart from the gang.
