Recently I purchased a Lee Filter system for my camera. I was dubious as to the worth of an on-camera filter system – after all, Lightroom has a graduated filter built in where I can adjust exposure, white balance etc. However, having taken it for a walk I can honestly say that being able to make adjustments while shooting is amazing. The filter can rotate, and slide in it’s holder to achieve a variety of effects, and the creative possibilities are endless. I foresee a new place to dump my camera funds – for sure the big stopper is coming on my next trip!
Here’s an image-heavy post of the beautiful Leslie Street Spit here in Toronto – almost every shot here is taken with the filter on. I’m using the 4×6 holder, on a 10-20 mm sigma wide angle lens, my trusty Canon 7D and a 0.6 graduated neutral density filter.
