What does a polarizer do, exactly? Is it just a glorified neutral density filter? Far from it, although both are incredibly useful. Here, you’ll find out what a polarizing filter is, and if it’s worth the investment.

What Is a Polarizing Filter in Photography?

A side-by-side polarizer comparison

When the sky is not 15 stops brighter than the landscape that you’re also trying to capture, you’re able to expose everything correctly all at once.

The German model and designer is best known for being one of THE faces of the 1990s, and this year, she has a new book, Captivate!, which curates fashion photography from that era.
