Providing total control of a photograph, this guidebook details camera filters and the simple, inexpensive ways they can be employed in order to move from simply taking pictures to capturing imaginative images. Discussing a vast array of filters—from screw-in and slide-on filters for traditional film cameras to the cutting edge, post-production software associated with digital cameras—photographers will find practical, professional advice alongside photo examples that illustrate the differences in every filtering decision. From manipulating flesh tones in portraits to color-balancing an architectural interior, this resource provides the methods to allow photographers to express their complete creative vision. Three helpful appendices—discussing light theory, how sensors record images, and metering systems—are also included.
