All About Filters

May 20, 2010

Another area where digital SLR cameras have an advantage over compact digital cameras is your ability to use filters with them. Filters are disks that are placed over the end of your lens and are used to create a number of effects. Normally they are used to alter the lighting conditions for an image.

These effects can be used subtly to improve the overall quality of your images, or to create special effects for your images. Filters can either be attached directly to the lens or with a special lens holder attachment.

There are many types of filters you can get and use, and here is a list of some of them:

Camera Lens Filter

Camera Lens Filter

There may come a time when you want to reduce glare in your photographs, or create special effects, at which point you will need to use filters.

Whatever your goals consider filters as an add-on for your digital SRL camera.

Remember, keep taking lots and lots of photographs of your kids. You will be glad you did!
