Mastering Filters for Photography is the definitive guide to using filters for film and digital photography. The book helps readers select the correct filter system for the job at hand, be it digital or optical, by providing comprehensive, up-to-date information, step-by-step instructions, and useful and inspiring comparative images. Optical filters are explored in depth, including understanding and managing light, contrast, and colour; using filters for black and white and special effects photography; and how to employ their practical applications in landscape and nature, portrait and wedding, fine art, architecture, and commercial and studio photography to achieve professional results.

Mastering Filters for Photography employs a language suitable for professionals and aspiring professionals throughout, and is an indispensable guide to optical and digital filter systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must to learn about filters. 2 July 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent. It's well written, explains the subject well and understandably, is well illustrated. The book covering both mechanical and computer filters, where and how they can be used. Where there might be alternative ways of achieving an effect the differences are covered and the author often says why he chooses one or the other. I knew a little about filters but this book has left me a lot wiser. I was particularly impressed with the way the author used a mixture of mechanical and computer again covering why. I will recommend this book to my fellow photographers, whether they are wanting to capture natural light and scenes, enhance that which they have already taken or create something different.
