Sunrise 03172015, new filters

03/02/16 09:25:13PM

I've never used filters before, I mostly do photography to create web objects for sites and use a digital camera and do everything post in Photoshop but this last week I got my first filters and tried out the first one this morning quickly, a graduated neutral density filter - half of the filter is clear and the other half is neutral density - it reduces or modifies intensity of color.  Just did this really fast on way to daughter's school with camera on tripod on hood of car as she yelled at me that we would be late.  I also got a remote shutter release, a switch to take pix while not touching your camera so it reduces chances you'll shake it.  Planning to drag Ceri and kids out to the high desert to learn to use all these wonderful things next week!
