A Look at Polarizing Filters

If you are a nature photographer and do not have a polarizing filter you should definitely purchase one as soon as possible. The filter has many affects including cutting down on reflections and increasing saturation in photos. The filters also make skies bluer when in many situations the sky would appear very light blue to white without the filter.

Here is an example of the affects on saturation and reflections.





A polarizing filter was used in the first photo but not used in the second photo. Look at the changes in the reflection of the water and the increase of saturation in the leaves in the upper right hand corner of the photo.
