“And Now For Something Completely Different…”

King Arthur: Who are you who can summon fire without flint or tinder?
  Tim: There are some who call me… Tim.”

-Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 1975 

After a weekend away to the West Coast with the fam, I thought I’d show you a neat trick I learned while sitting on the beach.  Taking pictures of the scenery and  the children, I decided to hold my polarized sunglasses that have a yellow filter on them in front of the camera lense to test the difference in pictures.  Thought I’d share my findings.   

Exhibit A:

And Exhibit B, literally same minute, same subjects location, etc with the sunglasses as a filter:

Pretty cool, I thought.  Perhaps useless, but if you want a way to get an almost antiquated look out of ordinary photos, this is a low-budget way to do it.

  1. i’m sure there’s a scientific explanation that doesn’t matter….your right,though, it’s a very cool look
