Photo Hints About Coloured Photo Filters That'll Take Your Landscape Photography To Another Level!
Today's photo hints 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 coloured photo filters to your armory that is shooting is a good method to get radically better landscape photography!
Photo tip #1 - Exactly what is a great way to store your photo filters so they are readily available?
They take up a lot of room in your camera bag, if you keep them in their original packaging. 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 not actually tell what the filter is unless you take them all out.
That is not much of an issue until the day you forget to put them back. It might cost you quite lots of money - and save the next 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'll never 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 utilize and may see the filters! Case Logic makes my case and has really been storing my filters for years. In the event that you need one, they make camera cases too.
Photo Hint #2 - Coloured Filters. Purchase them and don't purchase them.
The very next time you are viewing television - or visit the pictures, notice the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is designed to represent morning or dusk. Often, coloured filters aren't natural and inserted the colours you see.
The filter effect is never noticed by you if done properly; as being shot at that time of day, you simply accept the scene.
Sometimes, the director lets the colored filters become clear and not blend in and may want something edgy.
As I write this, there is a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you want to view a clear use of coloured filters, have a look at that one. In fact they use them in my opinion, and it detracts from the show.

But then again, they are making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is most likely erroneous.
Like that's easily accomplished in Photoshop with one or two clicks, in our photography, an overall 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 , not purchase solid color filters.
What I DO advocate 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 decide on different colors and densities.
A split filter is one that is certainly clear at the bottom and coloured at the top. The dividing line can be a slow 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 at the same time it is more challenging and time consuming to replicate in Photoshop. Especially with a gradual fade.
It is worth having them in your toolbox and spending a few dollars.
Adding coloured photo filters to your shooting will take your landscape photography to a brand new level and provide it that 'WOW' factor. This photo suggestion can set you besides the group and help you start winning photo competitions.
