I learned a really neat trick this past weekend using an inexpensive compact digital camera to obtain better outdoor pictures.
Ever wonder why pictures taken with your camera don’t look as good when you get home as you remembered? One of the main reasons is because you were wearing sunglasses.
The sunglasses act as a polarizer to reduce glare and increase the contrast you see. Colors look more vivid and the entire picture has more life.
Doing this is really 1-2-3 easy. Remove your sunglasses, hold them in front of the camera lens, and take the picture!
While this trick doesn’t always work, it certain can’t hurt to try this neat quick trick.
Certainly for those of you who travel around with the larger SLR cameras, you likely already have a polarizer with a filter mount. If you don’t, this is something you should add to your photography arsenal.
