In a recent discussion on B & W shooting I promised these snaps—
The wee duck above was shot in full colour against the blast of the morning sun bouncing off the water. Ergo, colour-duck became a little monochromaticish. (Not that he cared once he saw it was a camera I was fiddling with and nary a sandwich in sight …)
AND NOW TO DEMONSTRATE
the awesome power of a polarising filter, feast yer eyes on this—
—and compare it with this—
—the only difference being a wee twist of the filter. I leave it permanently mounted on my lens (okay, it must cost a wee bit in light transference but sure beats faffing about with lens caps) … and dare I say it—it’s brilliant in reducing glare and boosting colours, especially in the bluey bits of the sky (yep! Down here in Southland we do, despite all rumours to the contrary, occasionally get some blue in our skies).
NOW GET THEE
hence and go shoot some ducks~!
