Photographer Tips: How to Use Photo Filter


Digital camera has become the most powerful tool to produce a magnificent image in the modern world. Its simplicity and easy to carry anywhere becomes a significant advantage especially for common people who strange to the world of photography.It is a piece of cake to capture any image but when we are talking about creating a great panorama view or epic sunset landscape it sounds too hard for us to do it. The timing and tools you use should be as perfect as possible.
But actually it's not that hard to produce an epic image because the thing to do after your image captured is the next critical factor which is editing your photo a photo filter. Photo filter is a tool that we can use to manipulate or enhancing certain colour background in our image. For example, you already plan to take a sunrise image on a beach during your vacation but some occasion occurs so you arrive late during daylight and miss the moment.
If this kind of thing happens, don't worry because you could use Photoshop program on computer to edit the photo to your likeness. Of course you would need to install the program first on your computer in able to use it.
So, how to use a photo filter? Click the Image button on the top menu bar then choose Adjustments.
As you can see now that there are several options to choose but you have to choose the photo filter option. Now you will see optional filter for you to choose starting from Warm filter to free color picker filter. Choose the Warm filter (85) to create a sunset or sunrise effect. Customize the density level to any level you like. My personal opinion the level should be around 25% to avoid any colour degradation.
For example, if you choose less than 20% then the original daylight that dominated by blue colour would be too strong and making the image impression of sunset time to be a failure. But if you choose to maximize it to above 50% than the orange colour will override other colour and destroy the epic feel of sunset.
Wait up for my next post that will explain the function and the use of each filter and on what type of filter fits one which photograph. Nonetheless, you should also try other filter colour too as you wish and keep experimenting on it to produce other spectacular pictures!
