It is true there may be many filters that are no longer necessary with the advent of digital photography, and the array of digital filters that come along with it, but there are still a few filters that no computer can replicate. In this post, I will go through the set of filters that I bring with me every time I go out to shoot landscapes in Banff National Park, listed in order of importance to me:
Banff and the Canadian Rockies are known around the World for the many Famous landscape photography locations here. Think about Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Vermillion Lakes and Mount Rundle.

Photographers, more than any other profession, have to MacGyver stuff all the time. We use light to create lasting memories. Unfortunately, light isn’t always where we want it.

It’s always a treat when Chris and I each get a copy of a new camera when we shoot an episode, so not only can Chris take photos and video, but I can film the entire episode on the camera in question. That was the case when we went to Sedona for our A7R III field test. You can find out Chris’ thoughts on the A7R III in the embedded video, but I wanted to give my impressions using the camera the way I do every week, shooting our show.
