    Hey folks,

    I love the work of landscape photographer, Patrick Smith...

    Patrick Smith Photography - Landscape Photography and Seascape Photography - Home

    Interestingly enough, he doesn't use a polarizer on most of his shots.

    I emailed him about it...

    He replied with...

    His pictures are amazing, and yet he doesnt use a CPOL, which most landscape shooters advocate. What are your thoughts on his methods? Obviously it works, but what do you think?

    I think that he takes a reasonable approach..... A Polarizer is just another tool in the bag......Use it when you need it and when you don't, don't..

    And the majority of what i see on his site, a polarizer would do no good.

    like what larry said, just a tool in the bag.
