- High Dynamic Range
- Neutral Density
- Ultra Violet
Polarizing- reduces glare + works best at 90 degrees to light source. Cuts out light by about 1.5 stops.
Neutral Density- Reduces intensity of light.
Graduated ND filters- reduces over exposure gradually.
Ultra violet- reduces haze from UV light.
Infrared Filters- Blocks all visible light apart from infrared.
HDR- Dynamic range is the difference between the darkest + lightest part of an image.
HDRi allows for a greater range to be represented than standard display can produce.
Brian advised for a polarising lens overall out of all of them as a general best shot/most effective lens.
He then went on to show us a PowerPoint presentation showing us the visual differences between using the different filters and their effects on the photographs. This focussed a lot on HDR and tone mapping.
- Choose Subject
- Use a tripod
- Set auto-bracketing range
- Suitable tone mapping
Series of photos using special technique using the theme “Urban Landscape”
remember- always use an odd number of images
From this last seminar with Brian I am excited to go out and experiment with photographing Urban Landscape as it is one of my chosen subjects personally as a hobby. It will be interesting to use a special effect on an image as I usually tend to not edit them, and will be a new experience for me to use the HDR technique on PhotoShop as I haven’t used it before. I’m looking forward to this last subject within Intro to Photography and progressing further technically with my understandings of Photography and Image Manipulation
