There are a lot of options when you’re shopping for optical filters. Check out the video and find out how to get the right tools and save some money!

He is best known for his nature and travel photo workshops, and he feels that hybrid nature photography is the next step for the genre. Rob’s work these days includes shooting video along with stills to create hybrid eScapes. “I think my students are going to be as excited as I am about hybrid nature photography,” Rob explains, “Especially when they learn that they can use tools that they already have to add another layer of creativity and storytelling to their photography.”
