Photo Filters – 5 main types of photography filters

In this modern age, people think of the filters only as options in Adobe Photoshop. Many forget that the filters were and are still crystal rings are screwed into the front of his lens, to provide special effects. It is true, however, that Photoshop can mimic the same team, so many photographers choose NOT to use the glass filters, and then edit the pictures on your computer. It is good, however, to get an idea of what really are the filters, even if you are a heavy user of Photoshop.

1. Blur Filters
Say when shooting a waterfall in the bottom, where you can see the foam of the waters form a cloudy area. The camera can capture in the form of separate drops of water hard, and you may want to no effect. However, you can get the cloud effect by adding a blur filter in front of his lens. You can get the same effect using the blur filter filter fuzzy Adobe Photoshop. Some do it this way, some prefer it that way.

2. UV filter
Did you know that ultraviolet light from the sun can affect your film? You could use a good UV filter on your lens to eliminate any UV enter your camera. Since it is clear filters can leave one of these on each lens. This not only serve the purpose to keep out UV layer protects the face of the lens when you constantly have a UV filter attached at the top. Photoshop can not do that for you!

3. Star Filter
Have you seen the labels of the '70s with the hard light like stars looking for? Well, that's the effect it can get with a star filter. A star filter makes any point of light (like a lightbulb, but not a light pipe) appear as if there were rays coming out and shining like a star does. This filter is very useful when you want to add a sense of glamor in the environment. Let's say a fashion show?

4. DOF filters
There are filters that can give a shallow depth of field effect, even in a small opening (it is assumed that five long depth of field). They are the fog and fog filters, which have a clear center in the crystal filter, but widespread everywhere. You may have seen pictures where the center of the image where it is the model is acute and is blurry everywhere. That's how they get that effect – the fog and mist filters.

5. Color Correction Filters
You can use color correction filters to enhance or reduce certain colors. When you have studied complimentary colors that have the power or complimentary use filters when you want a tone under a specific color. On the other hand, could improve some color using the same color filter.
