Using a Polarizing Filter - Pictures with and without a polarizer
These pictures were taken a few seconds apart. The photo on the left was taken with a polarizing filter; the photo on the right without.


    1. Great! When writing about something many people already know about, the worry is that you won’t be adding anything new. So I’m glad to hear that.

  1. Hi Jim very new to taking pictures Love the pictures. There great. Don’t know anything about polarized filters. Is the one you used is it a color filter.
    Love to find out. Thanks rick

    1. Sorry I should have clarified that. They are dark, almost black filters with a bluish tinge. They will not change the colors of your image (except as mentioned in the article) though. Hope that helps. If you have any other questions, just let me know.

    2. Thanks Jim that helps. I’m headed to punta cana april 6. Want to take some great pics. I bought a Nikon d7000 about a month ago any great suggestion or tips. Do you think I should use a polarize filter for the beach scenes. I’ve read all your articale. Great advice.
