"Beyond Photography - Artistic Post Production with Doug Landreth"
Photoshop appears to be King at the moment, but there are many other great options for those who don't want to pay the high prices. As I uncover new techniques I'll document them on my Creating Effects page
1. A Polarising Filter- to make colours more bright and vivid e.g blue skies, white fluffy clouds. They can also be used to affect the appearance of water dependent on how they are turned - one way to reduce reflections which makes the water transparent or the other to emphasise the water's 'sparkle'
A variety of filters and their effects
Critique of different types of filters
How and when to use ND filters
2. A Macro Lens- Which macro lens should I buy ?
