Skyward Photo Contest
Meet the Master Judge
Matt Suess
For the first 17 years of my career I was a photojournalist based in New England. I am a digital photography pioneer and began teaching digital photography to photojournalists in the late 90’s, helping bring digital cameras to two different newspapers. I was awarded the 2003 New England Press Associations Photographer of the Year award for my work at the Cape Cod Times. During my time as a photojournalist, I also photographed weddings & portraits, as well as corporate & commercial assignments. I teach numerous field & classroom workshops throughout the year as well as online courses and I provide occasional free online webinars. You may have already seen my videos for software companies such as Skylum and ON1. My passion for sharing and teaching what I have learned during my long career is evident in my down-to-earth and encouraging approach with my clients.

Use Filters

When photographing the sky, the type of filter you use will depend on the effect you want to achieve. Here are some of the best camera filters for photographing the sky:

UV filter: A UV filter can help reduce atmospheric haze, which is particularly useful when photographing the sky during the daytime.

Polarizing filter: A polarizing filter can enhance the colors and contrast of the sky, making it appear more vibrant and intense. It can also reduce glare from reflective surfaces like water.

Neutral density filter: A neutral density filter can help you achieve longer exposure times, which can be useful for capturing cloud movement or creating a silky smooth effect in water.
