Check Out This Great Beginner's Guide to Lens Filters from Photographer Lizzie Peirce (VIDEO)

If you’re still learning about lens filters, the video below from photographer Lizzie Peirce teaches you everything you always wanted to know about them but were, perhaps, afraid to ask.

“In this video I break down what a UV, Polarizing and ND filter is, what it does, and how to use it,” Peirce says.

While the video is titled “Beginner's Guide to Camera LENS FILTERS // Necessary or Overrated?!?,” it’s clear, early on, that she believes they are very necessary for helping to make great photos in many situations.

“I know when I started shooting, a lot of camera accessories, but specifically for this video camera lens filters, were really intimidating for me and they can be seen as kind of an extra thing that you don’t really need. But I’m here to tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth,” Peirce explains. “Camera filters play a key part in not only just protecting your gear but actually improving the quality of your content and allow for some cool effects that you wouldn’t be able to do otherwise.”
