    do you guys recommend using a polarizer for portraits? likle a full body portrait to bring out the sky and background colors?

    on my next "model" shoot i want to have a nice vibrant background to go with my subject.

    Just practice some before hand and see if you like the effect..... unless your model has plenty of time.

    its fine if you have enough light available, remember you lose 2 stops of light with it.

    you can also do the same by controlling the light on the background and model independently. under expose the background and normally expose the model
