Circular Polariser
6 months ago

Yesterday, I bought on Ebay a Nikon 77mm circular polariser for my 24-70 which, hopefully, will be here in the next day or two.

I've read about the benefits of this filter for photographing landscapes/skies etc, but what is its effect on less-reflective subjects like, for example, people's faces? My temptation is to keep this filter on the lens always. Is there any disadvantage on doing so?
