Recently I picked up a polarizing filter for my DSLR. The fellow at The Dark Room said “A polarizing filter is probably the thing you can buy that will make the biggest difference in your photos.” I think he was probably right, I’ve only just started playing with it and i’m really happy with the results.

While researching what polarizing filters do and how best to use them i came across a great video by DSLR Tips, which I found very helpful. He gives you some great tips on when and when not to use the polarizer and what to look for when you’re using it.

Here are a couple of the shots i’ve taken recently that really illustrate what it can do for your photos.
