Po­lar­ize the sky

NPhoto - - OVER TO YOU THEAPPRENTICE -

A po­lar­izer will help to re­duce re­flec­tions on wa­ter and im­prove over­all colour con­trast in pho­to­graphs. But it also serves to sat­u­rate and darken skies, es­pe­cially when they’re bril­liantly blue, like when Nigel took this Hot Shot. Care should be taken when ad­just­ing the po­lar­izer fil­ter, be­cause any po­si­tion away from 90 de­grees to the sun will po­lar­ize one half of the frame more than the other. This ef­fect is es­pe­cially no­tice­able when shoot­ing with wide-an­gle lenses.
