During my Cruise last year there was a kind Professional Photographer from SanFransisco..told me a few of his secrets..often in our camera standard settings.. contrast is often placed in the middle..he works with his contrast almost to zero.. to add some contrast back later if there is a need, with editing software

Also he told me to remove the UV filter an expensive lens can work MUCH better on its own.. a good lens has all the needed coatings and a 25$
UV filter can be a it takes one stop of light
UV filter and protection of the lens…. its a personal decision ..I only use a pola filter now and than

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything!

    Interesting juxtaposition, John – almost minimalist. I’ve always used a filter to protect lenses on my DSLR, usually a Skylight 1A which gives the tiniest bit of warming. Also recommended many years ago by a highly professional photographer – not the same one as you met! Nothing on my Sony P&S, of course! :)george
