Hello everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This week I was wondering why people use filters on their lenses. The main purpose I have seen is protection, but after stumbling across some amazing IR images I thought I would try to discover the other options. Most of the techniques are for landscape photography but don't let that stop you from trying some stuff out. firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a very informal video covering the basic uses of a polarizing filter. It does get the point across.
This video shows you a shoot done with a camera that has been modified to shoot infrared. However I believe you can do the same with an infrared filter and converting the image to black and white.
Graduated ND Filter:
Very short video on using a graduated ND filter. Pretty cool trick to do some in camera editing.
Landscape ND Filter:
This video is a critique on a photo shot with a ND filter. Pretty good video to get some ideas from and really learn how this photo was composed.
