Dusk With An FL-D Filter
by Bryan Peterson - PPSOP Founder

In my opinion, one of the only times to shoot cityscapes is at dusk. It’s easy and all you need is a tripod and a camera. But, let me suggest one more thing - a filter. Often, I suggest shooting with a FL-W filter to add a nice magenta tone to your dusk shots, but they are often difficult for Adorama to keep in stock.

Chris Hurtt and I recently worked through a solution while teaching a workshop in Singapore. We found that you can use a FL-D filter to get the same effect. First, let me show you the shot without the filter (image on left). This was shot on tripod and while it is a nice shot, it can be MUCH better.


The image on the right was shot with a FL-D filter and the difference is striking!  

So, watch the below video to see me walk through this step by step. All you will need is a tripod and FL-D filter and you are all set. Also, want to add, we have a new class that is being offered ONLY in April. It is with the wonderful Deborah Sandidge and it’s called Long Exposure Creativity!

And feel free to join me in the new lower priced Understanding Exposurecourse!

You keep shooting!
