Polarizer and Neutral Density Filters

April 6, 2010

{Seen on the web}

The advice for most landscape photography is to shoot during sunrise or sunset.  What happens if you are caught with a beautiful scene during midday and you can’t wait?  Well, you can’t do too much for the hard shadows, but you can cut some of that glare off the water to reveal more underneath the water and make the sky bluer with a polarizer.  A neutral density filter will knock down the amount of light so that you can use a bigger aperture or a slower shutter in the case of the above picture to make the water look  smooth.  It’ll add more interest to the photo and give you a nice vacation shot.
