It’s easy to forget that when it’s sunny outside you should try a polarizer on all your outside shots. In bright sunlight a polarizer makes colors rich and saturated. This gives an outdoor photo a real punch. It can also give the sky and clouds increase contrast in many cases.
I was shooting the home above that we listed for a professional photographer. After showing him the photos he suggested that I use a polarizer. For some reason I’d completely forgot about the wonderful effect that a polarizer can have on an outside shot. After this shoot I never forget my polarizer. The disappointing thing is that I’ve never figured out how to put a polarizer on my Sigma 8mm fisheye lens that I use to shoot 360 images. The front of the lens is curved so I haven’t found a way to mount a polarizer on it.
