I have a circular polarizer, but I have not been able to use it to achieve the desired result. As far as I know, I just need to rotate the filter until I get the best result. And that the maximum effect can be achieved when the sun location is 90 degree from the camera.
And my question is, do I need to set the camera to some particular setting or not?
I read at h**p://www.dslrtips.com/workshops/How_to_use_polarizing_filters/reduce_haze_deep_blue_sky.shtml, it suggests to set the white balance to daylight, and the exposure to -2/3EV to -1EV. I tried that as well, and got the result like below:
Without circular polarizer
With circular polarizer
The result is somehow not so good, if not worse, than the original photo without polarizer.
Canon EOS 650D
18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Or is there any other tips on how to get the best result? Would also be good if someone could share the photos taken with CPL, particularly in Singapore so I can try to take some photos on that area as well.
