New Photography Article – The Use of Filters

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.

I have been photographing with DSLRs since 2007, but have also used negative film many years ago and slide film more recently. Avalon Light Photoart specialises in nature photography from the southwest of England, particularly wildlife and landscapes from Somerset. A number of landscapes from Scotland and the Isle of Skye are also available. Prints and licences can be purchased from the main website.
