New from LEE Filters in collaboration with nine of the UK’s best-known and most highly respected photographers – Joe Cornish, Mark Denton, Paul Gallagher, John Gravett, Tom Mackie, David Noton, Charlie Waite, Jeremy Walker and David Ward.
Lee filters new book ‘Inspiring Professionals 2’ is beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated with photographs that demonstrate the creative potential of filters around the themes of Buildings, Coast, Handheld and Travel, Mountains, Sky, Snow and Ice, and Water.
In each chapter, the contributing photographers demonstrate in a clear, accessible manner how the use of one or more filters can help replicate what they see in front of them at the moment of capture – saving valuable time and, importantly, keeping post-production to a minimum. The result? More time to spend in the field making images. Each photograph is illustrated with a diagram showing the placement of the selected filters, while the captions explain clearly what the photographer intended to capture – and how the filter helped them achieve their vision.
The book also features a number of Technical Articles on topics as diverse as understanding colour, composition, stitched panoramas and unconventional uses of an ND grad, making it a must-read for any photographer who is interested in balancing their creativity with technical know-how.
The Little Stopper can give increased flexibility with exposure lengths in the lower light at the start and end of the day. This often means that detail and texture can be retained in areas of movement such as the sky and water, while still conveying a sense of time passing.
