Lens Filter Advisor

Lens filters are translucent pieces of glass or plastic placed in front of a camera lens to alter the light entering the camera. Lens filters improve photographs by giving photographers control over light and allowing them to emphasize the features of a scene that they consider most important.

Amateur photographers often don't know where to begin when selecting lens filters, but it's not really difficult. When choosing lens filters, you just need to know which filters match your photographic methods and subjects. Answer all three questions below, and we'll offer some suggestions for what kind of filters suit your kind of photography.

Are you using print (picture) film or slide film?
Are you taking pictures indoors or outdoors?
Are you photographing people or scenery?
