DSLR Tips & Picks

DSLR Tips: Using polarizing filters

I wanted to share a few websites and books with you.
I think video tutorials really help me to understand photography.
Whether I am looking for a tutorial on Photoshop or understanding studio lighting, I usually check out Youtube.com & do a search.

I found using a polarizing filter really intensifies my landscape photography. If you haven't purchased one yet, here is a video you should watch, using polarizing filters.
Also check out dslrtips.com for more interesting tips.
Gordon Laing, Editor of http://www.dslrtips.com
& cameralab.com makes it easy to understand anything in photography.

Here's the "simple to understand" video on polarizing filters.

I also want to suggest
few books that I have read. These make great holiday gifts for any photographer. I am presently reading Matthew Bamberg's "Quick and Easy Secrets for Using Your DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS" I find this to be one of the most helpful books I ever got. It shares websites for photo storage, portfolio sites, family tree sites.....to start..Ü
I am still reading this one, but will do a review once I finish it.

I also have Matthew's "101 Quick and Easy Secrets to Create Winning Photographs"
This new book is for anyone that wants to improve their images.

I read Volumes 1 and 2(2 out of 3) "The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby.
Amazon is selling a boxed set. You need to read the first one, before you purchase the second. He is a clever business man, but he is annoying..;)
He now offers the set of 3 for a reasonable price, just in time for Christmas!

OK, thats about it for now. If you haven't posted your Autumn photo yet, you still have time before we start the next challenge. Remember all challenges are announced on the 15th of each month. So you still have time to post some autumn color.
