    Default Hot Air Balloon Fotography

    Hi guyz,

    Just wanna ask you guyz if it's recommended to use any kinds of lens filter and/or hood to take a better shot of the balloons especially up in the air? I'm afraid the sun's rays or brightness will ruin the shot? Any recommended filter to emphasize the color of the sky and the balloons?

    Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks a lot.

    All basic photographic skills/knowledge. Long telephoto lens, possibly an ND grad or a CPL.

    Take the underground hot air balloon.





    Seriously, the other members have made good suggestions.


    I would add: a seriously proper lens hood.
