I have just published a new article on “The Use of Filters in Photography“. It isn’t an exhaustive list, but it concentrates on the most commonly used filters in digital photography. It debunks the policy by many photographic stores of selling a UV filter with every lens (usually cheap, poor quality versions) and tries to reverse the trend of doing everything in Photoshop. The effects of some filters can’t be reproduced in Photoshop (e.g. polarising filters) and it saves a significant amount of time in post production.
I will be adding some example photographs, with explanatory captions to the article in the coming few days.
