Pro’s Killer kit #01 Po­lariser

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

Nigel says… Most peo­ple are aware that neu­tral den­sity fil­ters en­able you to set slower shut­ter speeds than would oth­er­wise be the case, and so blur wa­ter and clouds, but when it comes to wa­ter­falls a po­lariser is ar­guably more im­por­tant, es­pe­cially if you’re shoot­ing from down low, as was the case with Enid’s first Hot Shot [op­po­site]: with­out a po­lariser, the bright whites of the waterfall were re­flected in the wa­ter’s sur­face; with a po­lariser, these dis­tract­ing re­flec­tions were eliminated, re­veal­ing tex­ture and de­tail in the riverbed.
