First Filters To Purchase For Your New Lenses. (for Newbies)

improve your images quality as well.
I'm posting this for anyone just starting out and most people with experience already have learned these lessons.
Top Three filters I suggest are: UV filter, Polarizer and a ND filter or Neutral Density filters of some kind.
Besides the fact that they serve to save your lenses from moisture, dust and what not they also will help your images in the way of glare and contrast. When I'm outside you can pretty much bet I have a polarizer on my camera. With images that show extreme contrasts such as in a landscape, blown out skies and darker foregrounds, I found the use of Graduated Neutral Density filters to be a huge help.
Using these filters will help with pictures that have a lot of bright shiny objects, items like glass, water and metals. You will also want these little helpers on your lenses on grey overcast and rainy days as they also help the punch in colors. Try shooting the next rainbow with a polarizer and see what happens.
I cover this in a bit more detail on my site with images if you would like to visit with me from time to time.
