3 Filters Compared: Polarizer, ND Filter, and R72 Infrared Filter

Take and Make Great Photographs with Gavin Hoey—AdoramaTV


Join Gavin Hoey as he uses three different filters to capture the same image and compares the resulting effects.

In this episode of Take & Make Great Photography, shot exclusively for AdoramaTV, Gavin Hoey shows why a Polarizer (note his quaint British spelling!), an ND filter, and a R72 Infrared Filter are must-haves for creative landscape photography. Watch as he shoots the same scene with each filter, shows the very different results in both color and black-and-white, and then takes you through the steps in Photoshop to finalize a near-Infrared photo in black-and-white.
