Outdoor photographers are faced with all kinds of conditions, elements, and outdoor features. One of the most intriguing features in outdoor photography is water. Photographers can use water to create stunning compositions by using the water and light together. Creating highly creative compositions with water features requires a circular polarizing filter. Circular polarizers allow photographers to remove distracting glares from water, or even add more glare to reflect amazing light. The circular polarizer is truly the most important filter that I use for my outdoor photography and is critical to successful water photos.
