Filters

Over the next series of posts we will discuss filters; specifically, two types:

  1. Those that attach to your camera
  2. Those that you use in programs such a Lightroom, Luminar or Photoshop.

Before we begin it is important to note that filters come in specific sizes to fit you lens(es). If you are like me and have multiple lenses this presents a problem; however, the answer is simple.

You buy the filter for the largest lens, an example would be 77mm as in the case of my 24-105mm kit lens.

77mm

So what do I do with my 100mm Macro?

67mm

The answer is to use Step-Up Rings

I buy a filter at 77mm, then use both 67-72 and 72-77 rings to use on my macro lens.

In the next post we will start exploring the various filters themselves.

Thanks for reading, keep on shooting, and, as always I look forward to your continued support.
