Colours are rich and brimming with nostalgia in this road trip series by Urth ambassador Chiara Zonca.
Words and Photography by Chiara Zonca
I took these photos on a Summer road trip through Alberta, Canada.
It was forest fire season and the light was very flat and muted due to the distant haze and smoke engulfing the sun.
I always use a UV filter on my lenses to protect them from scratches and reduce the blue haze on sunny days, but for the unusual light conditions caused by the fire season, I felt I needed the extra punch of a CPL filter to enhance the colours of my scene.
Overall I really enjoyed using the Duet Kit Plus+, I didn’t notice any major loss of quality due to stacking those two filters and the CPL really brought my colours back to life, making them feel richer and cinematic.
“The CPL really brought my colours back to life.”
