Reducing negative effects of light pollution in video and still shots?

1 year 6 days ago #632244 by JMunoz
I've been looking at physical filters that make claim to reducing the negative effects of certain  light wavelengths from common sources of light pollution.  

Are there any post processing tricks that will do the same?

The only chance is in case of light inherent characteristic
where a polariser is the way to go.

Any other phenomenon — that has nothing to do with light
itself — is a place not to spend time nor money because the
presence of it altered, impaired, the recording of the scene.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Unless you know of a plugin that can filter a specific frequency, then no, nothing in post.

I'm unaware of many astrophotographers that mention using this, in that they're usually away from cities. That's your best bet.

The recorded data will not represent the subject but the
subject AND the pollutant. It is easy to imagine that after
removing of many coats of paint, the wood underneath is
still there, intact; but that is not the way a sensor capture
works, in layers.

Sure is!
