Cut the Smog

Ugly color cast? Mask it with a filter.

NORTH SULLIVAN (www. northpix.com), a professional photographer based in Sydney, Australia, was hired in 1998 to document an international tour of the Qantas Choir, a children's chorus underwritten by Australia's largest airline.

The tour included the filming of a Qantas TV commercial, and one of its most memorable scenes was staged on a breathtaking expanse of the Great Wall of China at Jinshanling. Dozens of the young choristers posed atop the wall in a column leading off to infinity.

"It was a classic view," recalls the photographer. "It had depth and grandeur, and twists and turns as the Great Wall snaked up toward the distant hills." i The problem? Smog. About | 100 miles from Beijing, the ' skies above the set were so i smog-ridden "that the sun disappeared behind a curtain of mud," says Sullivan.

To save his shot, he placed a Cokin P2 graduated amber filter on the 28mm lens mounted on his Leica R6.2.

So even when you're not planning to shoot a sunset, when amber grads are typically used to boost color, this specialty filter is worth packing when you travel. —Peter Kolonia
