The circular polariser filter is a filter that passes light rays to the sensor in the camera only at a specific angle, so we’re able to compensate for unwanted light reflections that could appear on the surface of that lake, car, or even the leaves which we’re trying to capture, thereby increasing their saturation and achieving more saturated foliage colours.
One interesting option with using a filter is being able to eliminate those reflections that appearing on reflective surfaces, thereby increasing their transparency. This can be used for photographs in museums (when exhibits are hidden under glass), or on the street (for example, when photographing a cafe through a window).
The same feature applies to those scenes within which we photograph the sky. The polarising filter allows us to achieve a deep, blue colour, and increase cloud contrast, which results in a more three-dimensional structure in our pictures. Also, there are possibilities to achieve spectacular effects when capturing a rainbow, obtaining beautifully saturated colours.
The strength of the polarization effect depends on specific conditions. The best effects are obtained in the morning and in the afternoon at a 90-degree angle to the sun. At noon we have to pay special attention to framing, because the polarization effect will only occur when applying the principle of shooting at an angle of 90 degrees to the sun – that is, having the sun on our left or right shoulder.
This filter has the ability to adjust the degree of polarization through rotation. It’s worth using because sometimes polarization that is too intense creates an unnatural effect in the picture.
