Photography with Imre Z. Balint: Episode 9a - Color Polarizing Filters

Ok, I just uploaded Episode 9a about color polarizing filters, as I left the poor things out of my previous episode on the "regular" variety. I have to admit that I haven't used these types very much, as I've always found myself iffy about what scenery they would match to. But after playing with them a little more recently, I'd love to give them a go again; perhaps take them downtown and see what interesting hues I could get off of windows on skyscrapers.

For those of you interested in getting your hands on these filters, several manufacturers do make them. The ones I have specifically are #170 and #173 from Cokin. I should point out that I'm not being sponsored by this company, nor am I affiliated with them, but I can say with enthusiasm that I very much like their products.

  1. Thank you for this video Imre! I have always wondered what the color polarizing filter did. I was wondering if these are the same as a so called warming polarized filter e.g. a Moose Peterson polarizer? Also thanks for all the very informative videos! I have learned alot especially the one on composition!

  2. You're very welcome Gary! I'm certainly happy to hear you have found good use out of my videos.
