So you have been shooting for a while now, you have gotten the basics down and are looking for a way to expand your photography. Well there are many ways to expand , you could get a new body, a new lens, try your hand at a different type of photography or you could look into filters. Filters are a relatively inexpensive way to try different things.
We have all had it...we’re with other photographers and one of them puts their hands on their hips, stretches out nice and tall and says "I only ever shoot in Manual!" As if that fact in itself makes them a better photographer.
