HOYA HD Polarising Filters.
Sometimes it’s such a challenge keeping up with articles are there are so many things I want to write about with regards to Photography.
I have just moved over to Olympus from Fuji and have written a few small articles about my experience wedding photographer based in somerset, I will be writing a blog with regards to the last few wedding’s I have had the privilege to document using the Olympus E-M1 mk ii, I will get there I promise.
In this small article I wanted to quickly put together is about using the HOYA HD Polarising Filter on my 4/3rds mirrorless camera.
The only filter I use quite frequently is an N/D filter, especially when shooting weddings abroad as this provides me with the option to use large aperture settings in full sunshine and obviously is easier on the power required for flash when and if it’s needed to add a little punch!
Well as many of you know, I’m also a big fan with Landscape photography, I know a polarizing filter is a well known tip for producing blue skies and reducing shine etc etc but this is something I have never used until recently. Yep, I know all those Pro’s will be remarking about my skills as a photographer however, I always say, “Photography is a journey and always new things to learn” this is what makes this profession so much fun.
The images attached to this article were taken today along the Kennet and Avon canal near Bath, I am hooked on how this little piece of glass can make a huge difference to the images, SOC, Take a look and read up on some of the fabulous articles on how these Polarising filters work, how they filter out the waves of light that cause that unwanted shine, then perhaps get hold of one of these filters and have some fun.
