Filters Photography eBook

Essential and Advanced Filters for Creative Outdoor Photography

Think that camera filters are a thing of photography’s film past? Well, think again! Even with today’s sophisticated digital cameras and software, filters have a place in the outdoor photographer’s camera bag. Some filters, like ND grads, simply save time by capturing better tonal data in the field. These filters help photographers who shoot JPEG or who want to spend less time in post-processing. Other filters, like the polarizer, the blue/yellow polarizer and solid ND filters, return effects in-camera that can’t be replicated in software. Unlock the true creative power of filters by stacking several of these filters together at the same time for unique results impossible to recreate with software processing tricks. Learn the essential and advanced filters for creative outdoor photography from two photographers who use filters on almost every image they shoot!
