Photo Tips About Colored Photo Filters That Can Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Today's photo hints are about colored photo filters which you must 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 hint #1 - What's a great way to put away your photo filters in order that they're easily obtainable?
They take up lots of room in your camera bag should you keep them inside their own original packaging. Room which could be better put to utilize for spare 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 great deal of money - and save the next photographer that shoots from that place a package.

Here's what you do... purchase a zip shut CD/DVD case. Join it to your camera bag, and you will never 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 utilize and may see the filters! Case Logic makes my case and has been storing my filters for years. If you need one, camera cases are made by them also.
Photo Hint #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and do not purchase them.
The very next instance you're watching television - or go to the films, discover the colors on the monitor. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent dawn or twilight. Often, the colors you see aren't natural and were introduced by colored filters.
If done correctly, you never notice the filter effect; as being shot at that time of day you only accept the scene.
Occasionally, the manager may want something edgy and lets the coloured filters become clear and not blend in.
As I write this, there's 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 fact they use them too much, in my opinion, and it detracts from the show.

However then again, they're making the big bucks and I am not, so my view is most likely incorrect.
Like that is readily accomplished with a couple of 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 recommend is the fact that you get a couple of the most popular split filters. At least get some tobacco ones and some pink ones. You can later decide on densities and other colours.
A split filter is one that is certainly clear in the bottom and coloured at the top. The dividing line may be a gradual fade, or sharp. (I recommend a slow fade.)
This is used to color the sky without impacting the ground. The effect is more natural looking than a solid color wash - while in exactly the same time it is more difficult and time consuming to repeat in Photoshop. Particularly with a slow fade.
It's worth having them in your toolbox and spending a couple of dollars.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new amount and give it that 'WOW' factor. This photo trick can set you besides the crowd and help you begin winning photo contests.
