Article in EOS Magazine

The latest EOS Magazine (Jan – March 2012) includes an article I wrote about using polarising filters. ┬áIf I’m completely honest, this article was written some time ago and has been re-worked by Robert Scott: thanks for giving me the credit, Robert, very generous.

Well, anyway, the article describes how polarising filters are among the few whose effects cannot be replicated in Photoshop, and goes on to describe situations in which they are useful – removing glare from water, foliage, etc., saturating colours, especially blue skies, and cutting down on the amount of light that reaches the shutter, useful for long exposures such as the one below.
