Shooting under a bright overcast midday sky IS another great reason to call upon the polarizing filter as it will reduce the dull, yet bright glare from the surface of the autumn leaves. With the filter in place, and while looking through the camera viewfinder turn the outer ring of the polarizer and notice that the ‘glare’ on the surface of the leaves fades away, returns, fades away, returns, as you turn the filter a full 360 degrees. Yes, you can stop turning the filter when the glare has been reduced substantially if not eliminated all together. (If it were raining on this day, that same glare is still present but instead of a dull glare it is a glossy glare due to the wet surface that now is present on the leaves.)

Wishing everyone a most colorful shoot over these next few weeks of fall color!
