3 Essential Filters
There are three essential filters that should be in every photographers bag of tricks, this page explained about Special Effect filters. A UVP filter or UV Protector filter and UV Control filters basically protect your camera lens are the first essential filter, they not only protect your lens from the elements, drops, scratches and other accidents, they absorb UV light and can be kept on your camera lens at all times. You can learn more about Tiffen’s line of UV Protection and Absorption Filters by clicking here.
The second essential filter is the Polarizing filter, basically polarizing filters reduce glare which may wash out an image, producing dramatically blue skies, polarizers will also remove glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water, something that would require lots of retouching afterwards. There are different types of polarizers, the circular polarizer being the most common, you can get information about our complete line of Polarizing Filters by clicking here.
The third essential filter is the Neutral Density, there are also different types of Neutral Density filters, they help prevent overexposure and can highlight a subject by making the foreground or background out of focus. You can learn more about ND Filters by clicking here.
Although their not necessarily essential filters our Special FX filters can be combined together, because they are double threaded, so you can get creative and experiment with some pretty wild photographic effects straight out of the camera.
