Who the hell needs Photoshop aka digging deep in my old filter box

by Gerd Korts November. 19, 2010 5348 views

Yesterday I have cleaned up a bit the mess after moving from Germany to Georgia and felt over my filter box. So for those who do not like to photoshop at all a nice possibility to get nearly “ready for printing” pics out of the box.


Filtersystem [cokin.fr]

You know the situation, a nice sky but the sun from the wrong side and this is the output. A lot of photoshopping is necessary or

same situation, the same minute, what changed is the use of a graduated grey filter

sunset situation without

and with this filter

If that should not flashy enough the graduated filter in pink helps you out

or both of them with different covering of the lens

or if you need some “end of times” mood both together

These show the benefits of ND grad filters perfectly - reminds me I really must dig mine out of my box of camera gear!

Very nice set!
I had a lot of Cokin filters when I used my old Nikon SLR, but it didn't fit my new camera. I bought my son a Nikon D5000 kit, and gave him my old filters. I hope he can use them as creative as you do here.

But then I would have one more thing to carry! You are so right though... on the rare occasion that I remember to carry, say my polarizing filter, I'm quite surprise at how much fun it can be. But mostly I'm lazy. :-) This was a fun post, thanks for experimenting and showing us the results!

I'm only saying that because I have to justify the huge expense of buying Photoshop in some way!

Fascinating set. Quite apocalyptic, really. Mr Nasty (i.e., me) would say that Photoshop would correct for the perspective distortion in a way no glass filter could... ;-)
