Photo Hints About Coloured Photo Filters Which Will Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Today's photo suggestions are about colored photo filters which you ought to have in your camera bag at all times. And the way to prevent losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your arsenal that is shooting is an easy way to get dramatically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Just what is a good way so that they're easily obtainable to store your photo filters?
Should you maintain them inside their original packaging, they take up lots of room in your camera bag. Room that could be better put to use for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) and so on. Plus, with them all jammed into a side pocket, you can't actually tell what the filter is unless you take them all out.
That's 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 following photographer that shoots from that location a package.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip close 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 simply flipping through the pages, you pick out the one you want to use and may see the filters! My case has been storing my filters for a long time and is created by Case Logic. In the event you need one, they make camera cases also.
Photo Tip #2 - Coloured Filters. Buy them and do not buy them.
The very next time you are viewing television - or visit the movies, notice the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent dawn or dusk. Frequently, coloured filters aren't natural and inserted the colors you see.
The filter effect is never noticed by you if done properly; the scene is simply accepted by you as being shot at that time of day.
Sometimes, the director may desire something edgy and lets the colored filters become apparent and not seamlessly 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 see a clear utilization of colored 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.
Like that's easily executed with one or two clicks in Photoshop in our photography, an overall color wash.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I DO advocate is that you get a few of the most popular split filters. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later determine on densities as well as other shades.
A split filter is one that is certainly coloured in the top and clear in the bottom. The dividing line can be a slow fade, or sharp. (I advocate a slow fade.)
This really is used to color the sky without impacting 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 duplicate in Photoshop. Particularly with a gradual fade.
It is worth having them in your toolbox and spending a few dollars.
Adding colored photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a new amount and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo tip can set you besides the crowd and assist you to start winning photo competitions.
