Pro’s Killer Kit #01 Cir­cu­lar po­lariser

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

Char­lie says… A cir­cu­lar po­lariser is the only fil­ter that’s all but im­pos­si­ble to repli­cate in Pho­to­shop, so it’s a must-have ac­ces­sory for any as­pir­ing land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher. They’re typ­i­cally used to darken blue skies, but they will have an ef­fect on some­thing, some­where in the scene, pretty much all the time – even if it’s just sub­du­ing the reflections from my head! As such, it’s al­most al­ways worth hold­ing one up to your eye, and turn­ing it back and forth: once you’ve eval­u­ated the ef­fect it’s hav­ing on the sky, be sure to look at how it af­fects the land, too. It doesn’t have to be at 90 de­grees to the di­rec­tion of the sun to have an ef­fect ei­ther. Just watch out for any ef­fect al­ter­ing across the frame when shoot­ing at wide an­gles.
