Lesson 4: Assignment Assignment Title: Your favorite filter
Every photographer has their favorite filter. Photographers who prefer black and white photography often use color filters while photographers who enjoy color photography often use gray gradual or polarizing filters. Based on which filter interests you most, purchase a filter for your camera and take any photograph of your choice to test out the effects that the filter has on your work.
This is one of those times where I have to say that have no experience with red filters. As much as I would love to I don’t know everything about photography. In fact not even close… Given that I can’t really give you solid critique on this one. It just wouldn’t be useful.
If this is your favorite filter and you’ve shot with it on this image then that’s really the goal of the assignment. It’s just to get you to think about filters and how to start shooting with them more effectively.
Just bear in mind that when your shooting digital the need for some types of filters is reduced since you can control the camera more than you can when shooting film. You also have more options for adjustments in post processing with more control and precision.
Thanks for submitting your assignment and I look forward to your next.
