Whether you’re shooting digital or film, you’ll find that if youbegin to incorporate the use of filters into your photography you’ll achieve much more professional results. Polarising and neutral density filters or even c olour converte rs are use ful additions for any photo enthusiast’s camera kit ( though a lot of colour correction can be done via white balance with a digital came ra ). Still, you’ll be surprised how the addition of filte rs ca n make an image look much more natural as they help your came ra to compe nsate betwee n the way your eye proce sses an image, to how your c amera sees it... This is the reason tha t most sna pshots lack the look and feel of re ality. Your c amera simply doesn’t proce ss or see things the way your brain doe s. Similarly, the use of a filter can help you cheat with the look and feel that you want – say by bumping up the colours on an overly bright day or when shooting in the midday sun. Here’s a rundown on some basic filters that will help you achieve better looking photos. Polarising Filters A blue yellow polarising le ns is great for picking up the depth of blue in the sky while also adding a much warmer tone to any earth colours in your image. It’s particularly useful when shooting at high contra st times of day such as midday – although its best to avoid using these on a n ultra wide angle lens as the sky va ries too much and your image can wind up looking a little weird. Also don’t forget a polarising filter will reduc e the light entering your camera by 1-3 stops, so bear this in mind when taking your shot. yelloW Filters Absolutely essential if you pla n on shooting B&W film. A yellow filter will help you avoid overexposed skies and generally kicks up the tone in your photos, making them look much crispe r to the naked eye. PurPle Filters Our quest to be green friendly has a down side – fluorescent globes seem to be everywhere these days – which are an anathema to a shooter thanks to the hideous green cast they seem to give to any humans within a few feet of them. What’s the answer to avoiding that green-tinged hue? A purple filter. Presto! No one looks like the Wicked Witch of the West any more. neutral Density Filters Popular with landscape shooters the world over, neutral density filters are available in solid or graduated formats and suppre ss the amount of ambient light coming into your camera. A graduated ND filte r is great for enhancing detail in the foreground whilst assisting you in avoiding over exposing your background. Therefore it’s particularly effe ctive whe n shooting land and seascapes. A graduated ND filter is great for this purpose as the colour of the filter fades from dark to light and can be manipulated to suit the area of your image requiring correction. inFrareD Filters Popula r with shoote rs who like to e xp er ime nt with monochrome, the infrared filter filters out all wavelengths apart from red and infrared.The result is a blood red image that can look spectacular. uV Filters Most popular with SLR shooters, UV filters not only protect your lens from eve ryday scratches and grime, they also reduce the effec t of haze or UV scattering – so they can be particularly useful when shooting on water. However the grime they are meant to protect your lens from can just as easily wind up deposited on the filte r, so be sure to clean thoroughly before use. ■ V i s i ty o ur lo ca l C am er a H o use st o ret o see o urGreatranGe o F Filte rs! 17 17 6 holidays Gift Guide 22 holidays Gift Guides 23 Gift Guide Let us take the horror out of the holiday season with our guide to the hottest gear for all the family.

In an era where it seems many new photo educators are suggesting complex and difficult ways to shoot and p rocess your images, I suggest the opposite. In fact the same base principles of photography apply across the board. My suggestion is that you start with the basics, keep it simple and grow your creative interests over time.” His idea of a great holidaysnap is to “use your framingoption to tella story”.Leal saysto zoomin “to cut out unwanted aspectsandgetin tight on the keypoint of interest”. Importantlydon’t forget to add yourself into the photo!“Use your self-timer with a tripod (a table or similar will also work) or ask someone else in the group to shoot for you.” ■ picture perfect Taking incredible holiday and travel snaps is easy if you have the know- how. World Photo Adventures’ Darran Leal gives us his top tips for shooting great images on the go. It was a trip to Tasmania at the end of the seventiesthat first piqued Darran Leal’s interest in photography. “I had just bought a Praktica Super TL SLR outfit secondhand,” recalls Leal. “I sti ll have a fewphotos from that trip... “ThenIwasat NorfolkIsland abouta year later, shooting a Red-tailed Tropic Bird. Suddenly, travel and photography became linked.I was amazed how I could press a button and capture a split second in time.” Leal abandoned his aspirations for a career asa sportsman and took up a role as a waiter on Norfolk Island and within a few mo nths,through a little bitofluckandalotofhard work,after the sudden departure of the island’s resident photographer, Leal stepped into the shooter’s shoes. “A week earlier, I had taken one good image that suited the job. It was a simple shot of a family enjoying their time on the Island. That one image started mycareer in photography.” A fewyears later, a move to Sydney brought a role asa photographic teacher, where Leal learnt his craft under Sydney pro Warren Macris, and a lifelong love affair with teaching photography and shooting photosbegan. A working trip to Carnarvon Gorge commenced his career as a guide and in 1988 Leal led hisfirst photo tour.

SHUTTERBUG 30 30 TRUE BLUE Photographer Steve ‘Bud’ Dunn took out the prize for Camera House’s 'T his is Australia' Photo Friday competition... This is Bud’s story. While not a professional shooter, Bud Dunn is a keen amateur who has always enjoyed taking photos, initially with a point and shoot, until he moved on to an SLR a decade ago. The camera, a Pentax kicked off his photographic passions but it wasn’t ‘til about five years ago that Dunn bega n to take his hobby seriously. “That’s when I star ted experimenting with settings and when I got my first DSLR,” he says. “That was when my passion for storm and landscape photography also really grew.” Dunn admits that he loves the free dom photography brings him, especially its ability to transpor t him: “I love e sc aping and losing myself in setting up and taking shots,” says Dunn, “be it from storm photography or an a mazing sunset – it is like meditation to erase the stresse s of the day.” Several years ago Dunn helped to set up the popular Newcastle and Hunter Valley photographers group on Flickr and confesses that “meeting others of all different experience and spending time with them on group meets and bouncing ideas around” is another bonus of his ‘hobby’. His best advice for the novice shooter hoping to capture great action shots is to “practice, practice, practice”. Dunn says that the bonus of shooting with a digital c amera is “you can see the results instantly and cha nge the se ttings to suit.” He suggests shooting at events like motorspor ts or sur f c arnivals help to develop a practiced eye. “Going to the local park and panning shooting birds especially seagulls is also a great way to learn.” According to Dunn, to create a great photo it’s essential to capture a memory accurately, “so when people see it they can see exactly what you saw that day, like they have stepped into your memory”. As for his winning shot in the Photo Friday comp, Dunn admits that he had ‘racked his brain all we ek” before coming up with his perfe ct Aussie pic. “During a conversation about the local surf club’s new surf boat I thought ‘Oh I know what shots really says ‘This is Australia’. I managed to enter it with around an hour or so to spare.” Dunn ha s been involved in Surf Life Saving for some 20 years, so it’s only natural that as a photo enthusiast he would have spent some time shooting his local clubbies. Dunn says his winning pic was the result of being at the right place at the right time. “This was my ‘practice, practice, practice’ time and I ended up with some shots I was really happy with.” With his experienc e running the Hunter and Newcastle Flickr group, Dunn happily embraces the camarade rie a nd friendly competition that is found on Camera House’s Facebook page. “Se eing what other people are coming up with through their posted shots and as with the NHVP Flickr group, one of the best things is wa tching people grow with their creativity and style.” ■ PROFILE SNAP HAPPY 21 21 Surf’S up Shooting action in the surf? Try the sports setting for best results. This will ensure a higher shutter speed and your images will be sharper, plus youhave the ability to capture a series of up to 12 images by holding the shutter button down. F eature UNDERWATER DIVINGDEEP Surf Life Saving Australia’s official photographer, Harvie Allison, took Nikon’s AW100 out to ride the wild surf – here are his top tips for sharp shooting on the high seas. Harvie Allison has been shooting Surf Life Saving for more than two decades and is well aware that sun, surf and sand are often anathema to cameras, yet Allison says he couldn’t be more thrilled with the new AW100. “You might wonder why a guy with all the gear would get so excited by a ‘snappy’ as I like to call compact cameras, but this little gem is a must have as far as I’m concerned.Small and light, it fits easily in a pocket or backpack and you always have a camera with you that will catch a quality image, but best of all it’s waterproof and shockproof, making trips to the beach a joy rather than a stressful event.” No matter your camera brand, here are Harvie’s tips to take you from beginner to pro in no time. StrapItupItis agoodideatousea wriststrap or similar if taking your camera onto or into the ocean. Cameras don’t float, so it’s sma rt to make sure yours is secure. Another good purchase is a cleaning cloth (available from any Camera House store). This can be used to clean the came ra after washing excess sand or salt off. Sand is abrasive, so be careful to make sure it is thoroughly cleaned off after use at the beach; even a soft make-up brush is handy to remove grains from the casing. SplISH SplaSH After finishing your trip to the beach wash off your camera unde r the closest tap, removing excess salt and sand before a proper clean when you get home. H osing is not a great idea as the excess pressure could breach a water se al. reaDy, aIm, fIre Candid shots are always fun; have your camera ready so you don’t miss the action. Glare aware With all the reflection and glare, the lighting at the be ach is harsh, so make sure you tr y to shoot with the sun behind you to minimise shadows. float aND frame At the beach you are better trying to get shots in the water rather than under the water. The constant movement of tide, wind and waves stirs up a sandy bottom which isn’t ideal for underwater images; these are better taken at a pool or in other filtered water, using the underwater setting on your camera. paN aND ScaN. When framing your photos remember that what you see on the camera’s screen is exactly how your photo will look... if you have no feet in the shot and a big gap above the heads then that is how it will look. It sometimes feels unnatural but try pointing the camera downwards until you see the feet and heads in shot then capture the moment. I still remind myself of this one often ! Happy shooting, Harvie ■ Nikon dives into the deep end with their first waterproof camera. It’s easy to live in the moment with the AW100, it’s waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof.
