OK, so don’t tell my family… (I sure ask you to keep a lot of secrets from my family, don’t I?) …but I purchased a polarizing filter for my camera. It was under $30… and I didn’t buy jeans. So it’s OK, isn’t it? (Maybe my students won’t think so when I wear stained jeans to class… or maybe they’ll understand?)
Today was overcast, but bright. I don’t know much about using such a filter and whether I would even need it for these conditions… But here’s what I’ve learned so far…
In the past, I would edit just about EVERY photo I took by reducing the brightness, saturating the color, and adjusting the sharpness. For these photos, I adjusted sharpness… that’s all. OK, maybe I cropped one… but that doesn’t have anything to do with the color.
I’m pretty excited with the results. What do you think? (There are a few more over at Flickr.)
P.S. Do you know the flowers? (They were all in the Herb and Butterfly Garden at Audubon.)
