    Thank you for this detailed video. I too have a polarizer filter and should use it more. You’ve inspired me to get out there, use it, and practice to master this technique. Thank you! http://www.AnaMontgomery.Photography is my URL. Your system like others reject the dotPhotography URLs.

    Interesting video but I found the background music so overwhelming it distracted from the film. Is it necessary to use the music?
