Lens Filters

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

New to photography,

 

I probably sound completely dumb creating this thread.

 

Thread is to show what filters you own and a preview of the shot, or a filter you love to own, your favs etc

I use to have some ND filters when I use to shoot landscape stuff:

 

Neutral density (ND) filters uniformly reduce the amount of light reaching the camera's sensor. This is useful when a sufficiently long exposure time is not otherwise attainable within a given range of possible apertures (at the lowest ISO setting).

 

Situations where ND filters are particularly useful include:

 

* Smoothing water movement in waterfalls, rivers, oceans, etc.

* Achieving a shallower depth of field in very bright light

* Reducing diffraction (which reduces sharpness) by enabling a larger aperture

* Making moving objects less apparent or not visible (such as people or cars)

* Introducing blur to convey motion with moving subjects

 

 

Eg)

Got many more. They are on my website.

 

 

Other useful filters are CPL, and clear Filter.

 

Dont bother purchasing star filters etc..

 

 

 

Have a read of this: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-lens-filters.htm

I'll most likely be grabbing a B+W CPL before I head overseas, so cheap at the moment with the US dollar as it is.

in regards to that photo, just looks like shallow depth of field rather then a filter, e.g f4 rather then f16

I'd say this, as well as some PP in photoshop.
