Hi, thanks for dropping by. I decided to document this part of my learning process, i will be updating this page as i move forward with improving this cross polarizing setup.
So, recently i received my linear polarizing filter from the U.S.A. I bought 1.2 metres of it, which equals 4 units/feet to fix in front of my 2 softbox light sources. Since the filters aren’t as wide as my softboxes, i made a simple cardboard casing with a reflective material on the inside, so i wouldn’t lose any light and still polarize it all.
And the reflective material also reduces the risk of the whole thing being accidentally set on fire – the casing is cardboard after all.
On my camera i use a simple Hoya circular polarizing filter.
Well, it works.
Turning the circular polarization filter on my camera to snuff out the unwanted light rays.
