Most photography books give the subject only token coverage and deal with only the most common filters. As a result many amateurs don't really understand how to use them: they opt for gimmicky special effects without stopping to consider whether or not the use of a filter really does enhance the image. Covering all kinds of filters - from a polarising filter to cut down unwanted reflections or darken a sky, to colour correction filters to warm up an image, and special effects filters such as starbursts or multiple image filters - The Photographer's Guide to Filters sets out clearly and concisely everything you need to know. Beginners can see what filters are available and learn how to use them successfully; more experienced photographers can use the images in the book as a source of inspiration. Filter factors are given in easy-to-follow charts, while specially commissioned comparison photographs are used throughout, showing the same subject taken with and without filters so that readers can instantly see the effect.
