August bring the beginning of autumn… yes summer is almost over (short isn’t it?) and this year it was a cool and rainy one! But I did find a few sunny days to shoot. This month I experimented with a circular polarizing filter on the MV. Since it meters through the lens I could just put the filter on and twist it until it looked right (to my eye) meter and if there was a green light I was good to go.
It really gave a nice rich colour to the greens seen here!
And look at those skies!!!
To compare what the filter did or did not do, I did shoot one frame without the filter as seen in the sunflower shot. It made a really big difference! Now lets go back to some filtered shots.
I really like the results! Why haven’t I tried this before? I’m not sure… but I will be doing it more in the future!
