I just got an adapter for my lens (58 mm) to use filters, [a new thing for me]. I have Cokin filters; Sunset 2, Sepia, and Radial Blur.

Any others you suggest?

Thanks,

Simon

UV filter to protect, Circular polarizer for reducing reflections, Gradual Neutral Density for longer exposures and landscapes.

Filters that can't easily be replicated in Photoshop are the ones I would go for... polariser and graduated neutral density are the most useful. I personally like an assortment of starburst filters which takes ages to replicate in PS, and never seems to work as well. UV filters are also helpful as suggested above to protect the lens. Leave the sunset and sepia filters at home unless you're shooting film.

cardboard filters are the best. This way you get a better drag off of whatever it is your smoking. :D

And if you're motivated, you can even simulate IR filters. Here's a link to a tutorial:

T-Hanks All for responses, how much do u think infrared, (gradual?) neutral grey density filter and circular polarizer would cost, just wondering...

Thanks

I just checked today for an infrared filter, $249 CDN for a 72mm. Ouch. I think I'll play in photoshop for a while to create infrared-like images instead.

edit: I checked out B & H and it looks like what I was checking was on the cheap end. Though at B & H I saw an COKIN infrared kit for ~$50.
