Monday's Must-Have - Filters

Ok, so I missed my Monday post, but this still counts. This week's must have is for those behind the camera...filters. Personally, filters are a MUST have. I recently read a great article which questioned this, but at this point, I'm sticking to my philosophy. If you invest money in your lenses, you need to protect them.

Of course, filters aren't just for protecting, are for artistic purposes also, but really that's a whole 'nother ballgame.
