Photo Hints About Coloured Photo Filters That Will Take Your Landscape Photography To The Following Level!
Today's photo hints are about coloured photo filters which you must have in your camera bag at all times. And how to avoid losing them! Adding coloured photo filters to your armory that is shooting is a simple strategy to get drastically better landscape photography!
Photo suggestion #1 - Exactly what is a good way to store your photo filters in order that they're readily available?
If you keep them within their original packaging, they take up a lot of room in your camera bag. Room that could be better put to utilize for spare batteries, memory sticks (film?) And so forth. 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'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 will 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 need to utilize and may see the filters! My case is made by Case Logic and has been storing my filters for years. In the event you need one, they make camera cases also.
Photo Tip #2 - Colored Filters. Buy them and don't buy them.
The next instance you're watching television - or visit the movies, discover the colors on the screen. Especially pay attention to when the scene is supposed to depict dusk or dawn. Often, colored 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.
Occasionally, the manager may want something more edgy and lets not and the colored filters become obvious blend in.
As I write this, there's a show on television called 'CSI - Miami!' If you want to see a blatant use of colored filters have a look at that one. In my opinion they use them in fact, and it detracts from the show.

However then again, they're making the big bucks and I'm not, so my view is most likely erroneous.
Like that's easily accomplished with a couple of clicks in Photoshop in our photography, a general color wash.
Plus, you've got more control over the amount of colour saturation and so on... so I counsel you to save your money and not purchase solid color filters.
What I DO advocate is that you get a couple of typically the most popular split filters. Get some pink ones and some tobacco ones. You can later decide on different shades as well as densities.
A split filter is one that is coloured in the top and clear in the bottom. The dividing line may be sharp, or a gradual fade. (I recommend a gradual fade.)
This is used to color the sky without affecting 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 replicate in Photoshop. Particularly with a slow fade.
It's worth spending a few bucks and having them in your arsenal.
Adding coloured 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 besides the crowd and assist you to begin winning photo contests.
