Use Filters For Maximum Effect
Many must-have photography filters, such as polarizers and strong neutral density (ND) filters, can produce effects that are time-consuming or even impossible to replicate digitally. Not only can they protect your lens and enhance a wide range of colors, but they’re known for helping ensure accurate exposures to your images and add overall impact to your photos and videos.
UV and ND filters are a must-have for any photographer, mobile or not. UV filters are most commonly used to protect the front of your lens. A first line of defense against scratches, rain, dirt and dust. For this reason, most photographers leave it attached to the lens all the time. But the filter also plays an important role in filtering through UV Haze. Not a huge problem when you are taking pictures at sea-level, but as you hike into higher altitudes the filter definitely helps cut through the haze to increase contrast and improve color. Neutral density (ND) filters play an important role for filmmakers and photographers because they allow you to precisely control the amount of light passing through the lens for greater creative control over exposure. For filmmakers, this means shutter speeds that match your frame-rate while maintaining the depth-of-field you want. For photographers, it means you can reach longer exposures or achieve a shallow depth-of-field in bright sunlight.
