Photographing Water - Part 2

Ever wonder how to get rid of the glare that you see on water on a bright day?
Use a polarizing filter (one of the two filters that I use regularly).

Once the filter is mounted on your camera, rotate the filter while looking through the viewfinder. Hold the filter in the position where the glare is reduced or no longer visible!

If you have a point and shoot type camera or another camera that does not accept screw-in filters, don't fret....follow the steps above and just hold the filter over the lens of your camera!! Be sure not to block any gadgets such as flash or focusing beams that may affect the picture. Oh..and watch out for those fingers!

As always, take out that camera a shoot some film!
