Photo Tips About Coloured Photo Filters That'll 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 way to prevent losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting arsenal is a simple method to get drastically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Exactly what is a good way so that they are readily available to store your photo filters?
If you keep them within their original packaging, they take up lots of room in your camera bag. Room which could be better put to use for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) And so forth. 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 is 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 following photographer that shoots from that location a package.

Here's what you do... buy a zip close CD/DVD case. Join it to your camera bag, and you won't ever lose it.
The filters will fit in the plastic CD/DVD slots and by simply flipping through the pages, you pick the one you want to utilize out and can see the filters! Case Logic makes my case and has really been storing my filters for years. They make camera cases too if you need one.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Purchase them and do not buy them.
The very next time you're watching television - or visit the movies, detect the colors on the monitor. Particularly pay attention to when the scene is imagined to depict dusk or dawn. Often, the colors you see aren't natural and were introduced by colored filters.
The filter effect is never noticed by you if done properly; you just accept the scene as being shot at that time of day.
Sometimes, the director may want something edgy and lets the coloured filters become evident and not seamlessly blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' Take a look at that one if you need to see a blatant utilization of colored 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 wrong.
Like that's easily accomplished with one or two clicks in Photoshop in our photography, a general color wash.
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 the fact that you get a couple of the most popular split filters. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later decide on densities and different colors.
A split filter is one that is certainly coloured at the top and clear in the bottom. The dividing line can be a gradual fade, or sharp. (I advocate a slow fade.)
This really is used to color the sky without affecting the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while in 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 toolbox and spending a couple of bucks.
Adding colored photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new level and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo hint help you begin winning photo contests and can set you besides the crowd.
