As a beginner, you may not know that the camera has a variety of filters, each of which has a different purpose. But they also have something in common, which is to help photographers take better photos and protect the camera lens. Using filters can enhance colors, reduce light reflection, and overcome some extremely difficult lighting environments. So what are the specific functions of each lens, continue to look down.
1. UV and Skylight Filters
2. Polarizing Filters
3. Neutral Density Filters
The main purpose of using the ND lens is to prevent overexposure. If the light is too bright, it is difficult to choose a slower shutter speed to shoot. At this time, use the ND lens to reduce the light entering the lens and you can use a slower shutter to shoot. For example, if you need to shoot outdoors in strong sunlight, or you need to use a longer exposure time under normal light conditions.
Shooting waterfalls with slow shutter speeds to show special effects such as blurred water flow, traffic flow, people flow, cloud flow, etc., all require ND filters.
4. Graduated Neutral Density (GND) Filter
5. Color/Warming/Cooling Filter
6. Black and White Filter
Black and white lovers will definitely use this filter to the maximum. Now we can also have many other ways to make photos appear black and white. The black and white filter has red, orange, yellow, green and other colors. It mainly achieves a specific black and white effect by letting the color light of the same color as its own color light pass and filtering out other color light.
Mentioned in the article are just some of the many filters. With the continuous development of digital imaging technology, more and more people add filters to pictures through post-processing. However, the effects of filters such as UV filters or polarizers are difficult to simulate by software. Others, such as black and white filters or color filters, have gradually been replaced by image software filters.
