Tip: Eliminate Glare Without a Polarizer

Optical Filers

Polarizing filters are used by photographers to add saturation to colors; they also help reduce glare and minimize reflections. But what if you don’t have one?

Kathleen Davis over at PopPhoto.com says you can do 3 things: get a different angle, wear black (yes, wear black) or shoot it again later. These moves can do the trick to combat glare without using a polarizer. If you’re a photographer worth your salt, however, you should always carry one.

Hop on over to Kathleen’s post to read her take on this one.
