Lens Filters

Whether you’re a beginner or an avid photographer, you’ll likely have come across camera lens filters. What are lens filters? What are they for? Well, lens filters are used for a range of reasons and whilst many simply use them to protect your front lens element against dust, moisture, grease and light scratches; the primary purpose is to alter the way your camera interprets the light coming into your lens.

Circular screw-on or plate filters? Glass or resin? Some filters favour long exposure or flash photography, while others deliver specific effects to your images such as enhancing colours or minimising reflections. These are considerations that depending on your shooting style or your subject, require attention.
