    2 Photo Tips To Improve Your Landscape Photography!Here are two photo tips that will quickly boost your landscape photography or any outdoorphotos to a whole new level. Use filters and rubber bands!

    Photo Tip #1 Use filters in your photography!

    Filters are an indispensable addition to any quality photo and most top shooters use them onvirtually every shot!

    With Digital photography taking over the photo world, too many of us are using a point andshoot Camera on automatic approach. Since there are no film development costs, well fireoff hundreds or even thousands of shots in the hopes that we will get one good one.

    Too often, we dont. This method has dramatically reduced the photography skill set over thelast few years and it is going to get even worse.

    Rather than learn to be great photographers, we are learning to be great at fixing photosin Photoshop.

    I have nothing against Photoshop, but it should be used as a tweak in photography. Not a fix.

    One of the tweaks we will frequently use Photoshop to insert is the effect of filters.

    Photoshop is great at that if you simply want a color wash across the whole Image!

    But there are a few filters where it is best to have them on your Lens rather than try to add theeffect later. You could spend hundreds of hours on each photo trying to seamlessly add them.

    UV filters, polarizers and neutral density filters.

    These filters are a MUST HAVE for any camera bag! The UV filter will help protect your lensfrom scratches, etc. and can be removed before shooting if you want the sharpest images.Polarizers, remove glare from shiny objects, and give us far better skies. Its hard to imagineshooting an outdoor photo without one. And neutral density filters give us increased control overShutter speed and so on.

    The best shooters wouldnt dream of not having these filters in their camera bag. Butsometimes there can be a problem.

    Photo Tip #2 Keep A Rubber Band Handy!

    When you are using filters that screw onto the front of your lens sooner or later you will run

    Heres what you do

    Take a rubber band and wrap it around the filter. This will give you enough grip to get it startedturning.

    Where to keep your rubber band?

    You can keep one in your camera bag so it is always handy, but here is an even better option wrap it around your wallet! Or do both.

    If you keep your wallet in your pocket, wrapping a rubber band around it makes it almostimpossible for a pick-pocket to get the wallet out of your pocket! Try it; youll see what I mean!

    If you keep your wallet in a purse, there is less protection, but it still makes it harder to get thewallet out of your purse surreptitiously.

    These two simple tips use filters in your photography and keep a rubber band handy in caseyou cant get the filter off are just a couple more ways to take your outdoor, landscapephotography to a whole new level.
