Waterfall Polarizer

In Polarizing Filters, Water Features by Bryan Hansel3 Comments

The Singh-Ray Bryan Hansel Waterfall Polarizer When photographing waterfalls, one of the popular looks is to make the water look silky. On the waterfall workshops I teach, it’s the most sought-after effect to learn. Photographers love the look and being able to achieve the silky look brings a smile to a photographer’s face.

Fall in New Hampshire – An Annual Color Riot

In Equipment & Technique, ND Filters, Polarizing Filters, Scenes & Scenarios by Tony SweetLeave a Comment

Our annual New Hampshire photography tour is one of our most visually stimulating workshops. We’ve been shooting and conducting workshops there for 15 years and really look forward to going back each year. It’s also when I keep my Singh Ray filters close at hand. Clear, chilly mornings will be wet, creating a glow on the fallen colorful leaves patterns, which is always a great subject. However, the color can be dulled by the glare deflecting light away, resulting in …

Using Singh-Ray polarizers to enhance hot air balloon images in Albuquerque’s early morning light

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, Polarizing Filters, Scenes & Scenarios, Special Events by Ernesto SantosLeave a Comment

There is no doubt that New Mexico is blessed with a multitude of dramatic natural areas and inspiring historical architecture, but what really stirs the soul of this photographer is the magnificent light to be found in the state. This is particularly true of the northern areas around the Sangre de Cristo and Sandia mountain ranges. During this most recent visit, I found all the national parks to be closed, but nobody had been able to turn off the light. …

That would include the image above of sunrise through fog with boats at Newport Harbor, Oregon. Here I used my Pentax 645D with a three-stop soft-step Graduated ND filter over the sky. I like the softness and moodiness of the image. I have also posted another 130 images that have been ‘reprocessed.’ These are …

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, ND Filters, Polarizing Filters, Scenes & Scenarios by Singh-Ray StaffLeave a Comment

Next Level Workshop instructors Darrell Moll and Rod Brown freely admit that landscape photography is a nice escape from the business of running their regular studios. “If the truth be known,” says Darrell, “we would prefer to do nothing else but take pictures of the great American landscape and share our images and knowledge with others, but that may still be a few years down the road.” “There is no place I’d rather be in mid-April than in the Smoky …

It was not a very lucky day for Susan and Neil Silverman to visit the Racetrack in Death Valley

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, ND Filters, Polarizing Filters, Scenes & Scenarios by Susan SilvermanLeave a Comment

Co-Authored by: Neil Silverman For anyone visiting Death Valley National Park, one of the intriguing attractions is the Racetrack Playa. This is an area in an ancient dry-lake bed where mysteriously moving rocks make tracks in the mud surface of the lakebed. Endless studies have been made, attempting to determine what force is actually moving the rocks. Getting out to the Racetrack is no easy matter — as in 27 miles of tough ‘washboard’ driving on primitive dirt road. We …
