Red face Been missing a trick with Mono shots ?

Those who know my shooting style for Mono's , know I go for the dramatic look ....nice deep black skies if possible, with fluffy white clouds

Now it was only by accident the other week I took one of Markulous's shots where I liked the cloud effects, & converted it in Photoshop to a pretty decent Mono with little manipulation of the shots. It was only after enquiring how the shots were taken that I realised the use of a polarising filter had helped give that deep blue sky, that converted so well to Mono.

Now I've never been a huge fan of polarisers for colour, but my ignorance stopped me from looking in to how it could improve my Mono shots So tonight I have just ordered my polarising filter for my Sigma 10-20mm Get ready for some Mono's coming your way soon ..... in dramatic style I hope

I always think that, if you want dramatic, you just can't beat film...
