Eating Alone

I was watching a video the other day about how to use polarizers and ND filters to increase the “flatness” of videos and photos. After looking for an inexpensive polarizer on Amazon, I ordered the Tiffen 49mm Circular Polarizer and then set up a scene using a dish, different glassware and appropriately placed silverware.

Notice the lack of reflection from the plate and glassware on the table.
