Polarizing filters

Polarizing filters are a really important part of your camera kit! They are the one filter that you can’t be applied or simulated using affects or filters in Photoshop alone. In this video Karl shows you a selection of filter types including screw lens filters and adapter ring filters and let’s you know his preferred filter and why. Then take a look at why you may want to use polarizing filters and for what type of photography. Karl tells you what these filters can do for your photographs and explain why he doesn’t go anywhere without them in my camera bag!


  1. I have 2 different slide in systems, both of which have circular polarising filters I can rotate independently of any grads I might be using. With your system what happens if your polariser ends up at a 45 degree angle and you want to use a grad down to a straight horizon such as the sea?
