Better Photo Tips – Photo Filters & more

One of my first prize winning photos was a picture a waterfall in the background and a stream running from Based on their right foreground. I was standing in midstream at a fairly low angle, but what made this photo unique was that I had managed to capture several stars are reflected in the water. I admit it, it was pure luck, but with so many people impressed by the stars. . . I started looking for ways to be able to do so when I would like. It was then that I began to explore the world of photo filters.

Photo Filters are not going to change a bad picture good, but. . . can change from good photo into a great one. In other words, the filters are like the icing on the cake if the cake tastes bad, no matter how sweet the icing. For the sake of this article picture we will assume that you know how to make a good pie (take a good photo), and now you're ready to go to the next level.

Star Filters – Are available in 4 points, 6 points, or 8 points variety. These photos filters add glamor to the nature or highly reflective surfaces (like someone playing a trumpet).

Polarizer – this type of filter photos often is thought to improve cloud in the sky, but also give you more control with reflections on water or glass. They also help with extreme lighting pictures like snow or sand.

Close-up Filter Set – not everyone can afford an extra $ 300 to $ 400 for a macro lens, this set of filters is well worth the investment picture. This gives you the advantage of being able to take, and photograph the unexpected, whether it is a butterfly on a flower or the dew on the grass in the morning.

Split Field Filter – A Split Field filter allows you to go beyond the traditional limits of the depth of field in photography. Half of the lens is basically a close-up filter glass is half regular. Now you can take an extreme close-up photo of a flower to the edge of a vast canyon and still has two glass sections of his eyes clear picture.

Split Color Filter – This filter comes in various combinations. Like the filter field divided, part of the crystal filter is only regular, but the other half is colored. If half of the filter is deep orange for example, you can take a photo of any mountain and make it look like it was taken to sunset.

Spot Filter – The idea behind a filter point is that a small part of your photo appear sharp (usually a place in the middle) and the rest of the picture looks soft and dreamy. It is often used in wedding photos or individual portraits.

Soft Focus Filter – As its name implies, this filter gives the entire picture image a soft focus or dreamy. Use this very sparingly or people will think they can not concentrate. Besides picture Filters are a few other small items that you should put in your Camera Bag that will help to improve photo opportunities. The cost of these devices pictures are relatively small, but may give increasing (professional looking) results.

Duplex Poster Board – For many years have led to a 10-inch x 12 inch card stock that was black on one side and white on the other. This can be used to make a small object from floor stand back. A small tree frog in the grass is much more difficult to see that against a black background. This can also be used to control the light as a small photo reflector.

The spray bottle – with a small spray bottle of water means that you can take now a flower with morning dew "The picture, even if half of the evening. You can also make an athlete with sweat every time they want, or you can wet the wild hair is blowing in the wind for a better picture outdoors.

The last element quite cheap for great results is a tripod or monopod. Tripods do not have to be built so that a man can sit on it to be of good quality. And if you're worried about space as you are taking your photo wonderful walk in the desert to consider a monopod. It provides stability and make a good stick.

All these items are considered supplements picture. None of them are required to make a great picture, but when the opportunity presents it's good to know they have the right tools at your disposal. Of course there are hundreds Gadgets and gizmos another photo that you can get, but I advise you to stay with the basics. Much more important than anything you can add to the outside, is the vision you have inside. Learn the design elements. Practice main lines, balance, repetition, development and the rule of thirds. . . these are the ingredients of a great photo. Everything else is just icing on the cake.
