Photographer's Filter Handbook: A Complete Guide to Selection and Useby Stan Sholik, Ron Eggers
The characteristics of light, including its intensity, direction, and color temperature, are primary factors in determining how a subject will be recorded. This tutorial provides photographers with a solid understanding of filters, allowing them to control the light available to them, thus capturing their subjects in the most flattering way possible. Beginning with an overview of the color wheel, essential to any discussion of filters, the book then explores all aspects of filter use, from special effects filters to utilizing black and white filters with color film, soft focus, star filters, graduated color, double-exposure filters, and diffusion filters.
