Photography 101: Filters for Landscape Photography

One surefire way to get  the best possible landscape photograph is to use lens filters; they are like sunglasses for your camera lens. Two filter types that a lot of photographers use while shooting landscapes are:

Polarizing filters which darken the sky (bring out the blues in contrast to the pure white of the clouds).

Neutral Density (ND) filters which prevent too much light from entering the camera. This type of filter is useful on bright days or when the camera is unable to give you the slow shutter speed you desire or needed to create your photography.
