ABOUT THE IMAGE

Seeing Through the Fall Colors Canon EOS D30 digital camera mounted on a tripod, 100mm f/2.8 macro with circular polarizer, ISO 100, Fine image setting, 1/8 @ f/2.8, images have been edited and resized to be 214 x 320 pixel .jpegs (41Kb and 49Kbs)

Figure 49.1 shows two photos that were taken with a Canon EOS D30 digital camera and a circular polarizer on a 100mm lens. The photo on the left shows the results of rotating the circular polarizer so that all reflections were removed from the surface of the water. Without the surface reflections, it was possible to see all the way to the bottom of the stream. The second photo shows the results of rotating the circular polarizer so that the reflections were maximized.

The goal of this technique is to create an animation for a Web page that shows what it looks like when the circular polarizer is rotated. To accomplish this seemingly difficult objective, the images will be combined into one image as separate layers; then Opacity will be varied on the top layer and the animation will be created by using the Tween feature in ImageReady.
