I think we can all reminisce the days when we were new to the game and bought everything to protect our gear: the lens filters, bags that we no longer use, and those lens pens. Often, a lot of people buy UV filters and have no idea what they’re actually for other than protecting the lens from a hefty repair price. Of course we bought one and just kept it on there, never taking it off.
However, in the world of photography, there are many types of filters, all serving its own function to enhance your photos. For example, landscape photographers like to use filters to create some beautiful effects that can’t really be replicated in Photoshop.
Now we can look at the different types of filters out there: UV, protective, polarixing, neutral density, color, hard and soft edge an reverse graduated neutral density, and more. Some of these filters sound so fancy it’s no wonder people are clueless! And that’s why we have a inforgraphic for you: The Photography Filters Cheat Sheet created by The Studio at zippi.uk.co. This cheat sheet is definitely something to bookmark so that you can use it in the future when you’re buying gear or looking to try out some new filters!
