As part of my desire to improve my photography skills I asked for a square filter set for my camera. What I was most interested in was getting a graduated filter to help with some of my landscape photography and a neutral density filter to add some motion to my pictures. The set I received had a ton of filters and my first thought was, “I’m never going to use half of these.” I went through the filters and basically selected the ones I didn’t think I’d use and removed them from my case. At the top of the list was the purple (why would I ever need purple), blue, and pink filters.
A few weeks later, I had a change of heart and decided to give some of the more unusual filters a chance to shine. I spent an afternoon shooting a sunset with a wide variety of filters and continued on into the night with the moon shining brightly. The results were pretty impressive and reminded me not to knock something until I’ve tried it.
Let me know what you think of these pictures and if you’d ever use these unusual filters.
