Hi all, Living in NZ means you get alot of nice cloudy days, which I find great for outdoor photography. However, the past few days have been really bright and sunny and I find it alot harder to take nice pics when its really bright. I could use any tips and suggestions you have about shooting in bright lights. Usually I try to underexpose my shots a couple of notches, but I don't seem to get the best results. Craig (of this forum) suggested I look into neutral density filters. Can anyone else give me their suggestions? I had a polarising filter which i loved until friend accidently dropped my camera on its lens :shock: luckily only the polarising filter was cracked My camera is a digital Canon D10. I use a tamron 28-300 lens. to sum it up: 1. what are suggestions for bright lighting? 2. what filters can I use for different situations? 3. what links do your recommend for 'further investigation'? cheers!
