Photography/Cinematography filters are glass elements that get typically screwed onto the front of the camera lens. While some use filters to simply protect the front elements of the lens, there are a variety of filters available that allow for artistic control over the photo or video. Using filters is common among DSLR/mirrorless shooters, however, filters can be easily used for shooting with your GoPro also. They are a lot of fun!
In this video I explain how to easily attach a filter to your GoPro. Further below you’ll find an outline of what the different filters do and how they are being typically used.
Primarily used for protecting the lens. However UV filters can help with:
Boost contrast when shooting outdoors
Removes UV light and blue cast in very bright sun light
Reduces the polarization effect caused by sunlight:
Enhances the color of the sky
Eliminates the reflection visible in water/glass
Blocks light, so that less light passes through the lens reaching the sensor:
Allows for creative control over the shutter speed
Allows for maintaining a 180 angle shutter speed in bright sun light for video
Adds artistic effects to photos/video:
Orange: to intensify the orange and red of a sunset
