Polarizing Film 

Exceptionally lively color effects can be achieved with polarized light and a polarizing filter on the camera. The B+W Polarizing Film is positioned in front of a light source by means of a strip of adhesive tape, an elastic band, clamp, or similar. 

This works with flash units, LED photo lamps, flash systems and, due to of the heat generated, to a limited extent with repro lamps.  The polarizing film can be easily cut to size or punched and is flexible. It is colorless and homogeneous.

A Special Kind of color effects

Objects under tension are positioned between the polarizing light source and the lens equipped with a polarizing filter. The tension thus becomes visible and colorful effects are reproduced.

This works easily with clear plastic items such as a ruler or similar objects. The process is suitable for repro photography for creating anti-glare images.

Photo art

Take a look at Peter Lebeda's photo series "Deep Sea" to discover what virtuous photography with B+W polarizing films can look like.  

It is hard to believe, but to create illusionary photos like this, the photographer Peter Lebeda has used his plastic litter  as a motif. By doing this, he wants to draw attention to the pollution of our oceans. Beautiful - and deep.
