Since digital cameras came into our lives like a storm a decade ago we photographers became more dependent on post processing programs and many times prefer to achieve the needed result by retouching instead of using on-camera products and in-camera settings. "I'll just fix it in post" is something we all say to ourselves during photoshoots, but it's not always the right or smart thing to do. This video gives a short overview of some of the less known lens filters many photographers don't even know exist and shows how it can elevate images in no time.
The two most popular filters out there are the UV filters and the ND filters and they need no introduction. But what about colored filters? or the fog filters? There are so many less-known filters that can do some pretty interesting things that can give you shooting options you never had before.

The filter holder shown in the video is the LEE Filters Foundation Kit and it can hold up to 3 different filters at once.
