Thread: Direct sunlight photography - filters?

  1. #1

    Default Direct sunlight photography - filters?

    I recently returned from Perth in the heat of summer. I realized that shots taken at midday (I didn't have much choice of the time of day) appear blown out regardless of the setting I used. I read another post suggesting usage of filters.
    - Need help on where I can find newbie information on filters
    - Which filter will work best for this. Another post stated GND, CP - no idea what these mean!
    - Can we stack filters for different effects?

    Thanks!

    - Can you post some of those blown out shots for us to see? What kind of shots were you trying to take?
    - Stacking multiple filters might cause lens flare.

    hope this helps.
