Photo Tips About Coloured Photo Filters Which Will Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Now's photo tricks are about colored photo filters that you must have in your camera bag at all times. And the way to prevent losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting armory is an easy way to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo hint #1 - Just what is a great way to store your photo filters so they are readily available?
If you maintain them in their 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't really tell what the filter is unless you take them all out.
That's 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 bundle.

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 just flipping through the pages, you pick out the one you need to utilize and may see the filters! My case is created by Case Logic and has really been storing my filters for a long time. Should you need one camera cases are made by them also.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and don't purchase them.
The next time you are viewing television - or go to the films, notice the colors on the monitor. Especially pay attention to when the scene is supposed to represent morning or twilight. Frequently, the colors you see are not natural and were introduced by colored filters.
If done correctly, the filter effect is never noticed by you; as being shot at that time of day you just accept the scene.
Sometimes, the manager lets the coloured filters become clear and not seamlessly blend in and may want something edgy.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you need to see a blatant use of coloured filters, take a look at that one. In my opinion they use them too much, in fact, and it detracts from the show.

However then again, they are making the big bucks and I'm not, so my opinion is probably incorrect.
Like that is readily executed with a couple of clicks in Photoshop, in our photography, an overall color wash.
Plus, you have more control over the amount of color saturation and so on... so I advise you to save your money and not buy solid color filters.
What I recommend 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 different colors as well as densities.
A split filter is one that is certainly colored at the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line may be a slow 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 exactly 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 bucks.
Adding colored photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a new level and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo hint can set you apart from the gang and assist you to start winning photo contests.
