    Hi there,

    Sorry i have been taking a little while with this one! The Weather in England is really not that great and i didn’t get the shots i wanted but now i decided to just go in a different direction with it so i can move on… 馃檪

    Basically what I did was, i taped 2 plastic forks to my Computer Screen and set my Tripod in front of it and by turning the polarizer i got the white and black background. Also the polarizer made the forks appear multicolored.
    I know you’ve said you like the pictures unedited but in this case i only fixed the dusty background.i cleaned my screen but the dust particles was back on there the minute i took the shots!so to get the effect of the contrast i fixed the few spots with the brush in photoshop.

    I would have loved to take a Photo of a scene with a nice blue sky or show the reflection difference on water when using the polarizer but the weather was simply too bad! so i hope this will work. 馃檪
    Thank you for your time!

    Ok so after some thought I’m not sure I can really figure out what is going on here.

    I think there are some optical artifacts going on because of the computer.

    I’m not really sure I can add anything of value here because to be honest I don’t understand what’s going on!

    Can you re-shoot this one? If the weather is bad just shoot something simple inside.

    No worries if you don’t want to.

    What do you think?

    Okay, these two photos are really not creative but it should show that i have understood the point of a filter. 馃檪
    I’m a Mom of a 8 month old and alone with him all day so it’s really hard to get out there when the weather is so freezing cold, wich is very upsetting because the urge to shoot photos is getting stronger! 馃榾
    but it seems like it’s getting better so i can stay outside longer with the little one.

    I just wish i could have presented something nice because People on my blog and website seem to like my photos there! 馃檪
    but anyway, i hope this one is better. 馃槈
    thanks for your patience! 馃檪

    oh and i just noticed, i should have turned on the other light so i can turn down the ISO to reduce noise… :/

    This is perfect.

    No worries on the photo not being the greatest. It shows that you’ve used your filter and you know what it does. So that’s the baseline criteria for the assignment and it’s really the whole point.

    Just getting someone to use a filter and seeing the difference with and without is really the point.

    There isn’t much to critique here and you know that this isn’t your strongest photo. When you get a chance take this filter out with you next time and put it to work.

    I will see you on the next assignment!
