Are you looking to take your images to the next level? Getting ahold of some filters is one of the simplest, yet dramatic things that you can do to enhance your photography.
Filters are relatively inexpensive – but there’s a reason that they’re one accessory that’s often found in most landscape photographers’ bags. Filters can make a big difference in terms of image quality, and the type of images that you’re able to capture. From improving color saturation and reducing surface glare and reflections, to allowing you to use a slow shutter speed to capture softly blurred clouds or water, there are plenty of ways that filters can be used to enhance your images.
They’re also extremely portable and lightweight, making them easy to toss in your bag and go! In short? There’s no reason why shouldn’t use filters in your photography.
Let’s take a look at the most commonly used filters in landscape photography: polarizers, neutral density (ND) filters, graduated neutral density (GND) filters, and UV filters; as well as special effects filters; and see why you’ll want to invest in some of these options!
