Synopses & Reviews
Combining technique and creativity, this book remains the definitive source for data about the full range of filters and their application with both color and black-and-white film. Now that so many different filters are available, serious photographers may take a dozen on a photo shoot for producing the different effects that are shown in these pages. The book's hundred beautiful images illustrate how chromatic (colored) filters change the color content of light; nonchromatic (colorless) filters physically change light waves; and special filters, such a multiple-prism, starburst, and streak, create illusions that go beyond what we think of as visual reality.

"There are many excellent books on filtration, but one stands out as the best in my mind and that is Joe Meehan's The Photographer's Guide to Using Filters." Shutterbug Basics
