As outdoor photographers, we use a unique medium to create our works of art. While painters have paint and brushes, we use photography equipment to manipulate light and time. Great light is often what we search for, however, there can be more to an outdoor scene than great light if we think critically about the equipment that’s available for us to use.

Certain filters can be used to transform a basic sunset into a ten-minute exposure that warps movement and adds interest to a composition. Other filters can turn a turbulent body of water into a calm, glassy surface of reflections. In this video, David Johnston will talk all about the best lens filters for outdoor photography, the situations they are best used for, and how to creatively combine filters to compose unique photos.
