Whenever I take pictures including the sky, the sky either blows out to be white or is very light blue. Then I have to process the images to get back the blues of the skies.
Is there some way to get this effect in-camera itself, to get blue slies straight from the camera….August 9, 2012 at 1:57 pm #13299
One way to get blue skies is to use a circular polarizer filter. You can adjust the saturation settings in your camera or take an underexposed shot (by may be changing the exposure value to -1 EV). When you underexpose the scene, it saturates the colors to some level.
But still the best way to do this is to use a polarizer filter.August 13, 2012 at 8:14 pm #13393
Yup, as Ned said – best way is to use a CPL.
If you find though that your skies are still getting blown out, then it may be time to invest in some Graduated Neutral Density filters.August 13, 2012 at 11:06 pm #13395
CPL works wonders. I’ve also experienced that blue skies have quite a lot to do with time of the day and the pollution levels in the sky (like in dusty environment).
