Photo Hints About Colored Photo Filters That'll Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Today's photo tricks are about coloured photo filters which you must have in your camera bag at all times. And the best way to prevent losing them! Adding colored photo filters to your shooting toolbox is an easy way to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo suggestion #1 - Just what is a good way to store your photo filters in order that they are readily available?
If you maintain them in their own own original packaging, they take up lots of room in your camera bag. Room that 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 outside.
That is not much of a problem until the day you forget to put them back. It may cost you quite a lot of cash - and save the following photographer that shoots from that place a package.

Here's what you do... buy a zip close CD/DVD case. Connect 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 want to use and may see the filters! My case has really been keeping my filters for years and is made by Case Logic. In the event you need one camera cases are made by them too.
Photo Tip #2 - Coloured Filters. Purchase them and don't purchase them.
The next instance you are viewing television - or go to the pictures, find the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent dawn or twilight. Frequently, the colours you see aren't natural and were introduced by coloured filters.
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.
Occasionally, the director may need 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!' If you need to see a blatant utilization of coloured filters have a look at that one. In my opinion they use them in fact, also it detracts from the show.

However then again, they are making the big bucks and I am not, so my view is probably wrong.
Like that's easily accomplished 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 the fact that you get a few of the most popular split filters. Get some tobacco ones and some pink ones. You can later determine on different shades and densities.
A split filter is one that is colored at the top and clear at the bottom. The dividing line can be a slow fade, or sharp. (I advocate a gradual fade.)
This really is used to color the sky without changing the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while in the same time it is more difficult and time consuming to reproduce in Photoshop. Especially with a gradual fade.
It's worth having them in your armory 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 hint help you start winning photo competitions and can set you besides the gang.
