    With the exception of a few little touch ups to the photos to make the assignment more presentable.

    Here is the final result. How using certain filters can not only affect the color of your photograph.

    But can affect the overall integrity of the photo, in terms of exposure, and detail as well.

    Use it right and of course you will get stunning results! 馃檪

    Enjoy!

    Hey there,

    Somehow this one slipped through the cracks.

    This assignment is really just about students taking action and getting out and photographing things using filters.

    Notice how the colors are punchier and the reflection is pretty much eliminated in this image. The image is just quite a bit better overall.

    There isn’t really anything for me to say because you did very well and nailed it! If you can keep practicing your use of filters and pick up some more filters and add them to your kit.

    I always love using the polarizer probably the most versatile piece any photographer can have.

    From going over the assignment the one filter that caught my eye is the Deep Orange Filter.

    I hope to add this filter to my arsenal very soon!

    The dramatic effect that stems from this filter is excatly what I need in my area of photography.

    Including a Neutral Density Filter for more mysterious, ethereal shots as well.

    But I will experiment with other filters to see what new techniques I can discover!
