This is just the book I have been hunting for. It tells me what filter to use and what to expect. It is suitable for all levels of photographers. This book has easy to follow reference charts and specially commissioned comparison shots that helps alot. If you are getting into filteers for your camera try this book. You won't regret it. So glad I found it here on Amazon its the first place I look for all my books.

Having been a photographer with film and now getting back into it with digital is almost like learning a new language. This book separates the use of filters on the camera (what I'am used to)and in the digital darkroom. I want to do as much as possible with image presentation in the camera; and with the new digitals white balance control you can create or dramitize in camera. This book talks about gear, not only filters but camera types, lenses, tripods etc. I have found this to be a very informative and useful book;as I have been away from photography for many years.

I have never learned so much about filters as I have reading this book. I love that it talks about on-camera filters as well as those you apply in post. The images throughout the book are great as well. This is already a cherished addition to my photography library.

This book covers the use of lens filters, from Circular polarizers and Neutral Density to filters in post processing, i.e. Photoshop. Its very complete and easy to digest, in spite of some saying its "too technical". Most cameras and software is somewhat "technical", no? Highly recommend to any photographer not yet using filters....
