Playing with Filters

I knew my schedule was taking me back near the bridge from the last post.  I wanted a crack at it with more filters and a tripod.  The neutral density filter that I used before came with 2 friends that I layered on top before loading the camera in my bag.  I did not have much time, because, well, I was still “working.”  I parked, grabbed by bag and my tripod and hustled back to the bridge.  

On the way out, it was apparent that a few storms had been by since my last visit.  The water was higher.  There was more debris.  It was a little creepier.

The photos all came out with a red tint. Maybe it is because I did pretty much pick the filters by size and price only.  Luckily, tint can be largely corrected with the magic of LIGHTROOM.  I was able to take longer exposures before light blew out the image.

    • Thanks! I used a red filter for some black and whites & experiments years ago. This effect is much more intriguing. I do think a higher quality filter may go on my list of wanted toys. 8)

  1. That’s fun playing with filters, isn’t it Katie ? A little hint, when not using filters, keep a clear filter or UV filter on your lens which will protect the lens from small knocks and dirt. Works for me ! Coffee filters don’t work ! 🤪😳💕
