With And Without

Here's a neat little thing I've been meaning to show you, but I don't think I've ever actually followed through and posted. The shots above and below are both pictures of Longboat Pass this afternoon. The shot above was taken through a polarizing filter, the shot below was taken through the same filter, but the filter was rotated 90 degrees. Some difference, eh? That's a little trick that photographers use all the time to get richer colors, less glare, more contrast, all sorts of improvements. So next time you want to go take pictures at the beach, be sure to pick up this handy gadget at your local photographic supply store. Or just hold your polarized sunglasses over the lens. Same difference. Either way, it's great to live in paradise!
