How filters work
PL
Polarizing filters are generally used in landscape photography, as they can both control polarized light – commonly known as "light reflection" and contrast. There are two types of polarizing filters: PL (Polarized Light) and C-PL (Circular Polarized Light), but C-PL filters are generally the most used.

ND
The main feature of ND filters is their ability to give you control on the shutter speed. ND filters come in wide range of values, from ND2 to ND100000, but can be generally summarized in 3 main categories: light, middle and heavy.

STAR
By star-shaping light sparkling from light sources like holiday illuminations or water surfaces, star filters can confer your photos a more scenic and impressive effect. In the same way as for C-PL filters, star filters come in a two-filters rotating structure that, by rotating the filter’s frame, allows adjusting the angle of the light rays hitting the filter’s surface.

SOFT
Soft filters are often used in portraits or flower photography, as they can blur light and "soften" the atmosphere.

CLOSE-UP
Also known as close-up lenses, close-up filters prove to be convenient filters to have at hand. By installing these filters on whatever lens you are using at the moment, you can easily but effectively shoot macro. Or, by installing them on your macro lens, you can further shorten the working distance and get closer to your shooting object, thus making it look bigger on the final image.

IR
Originally developed to perform and enjoy infrared photography with black-and-white and color infrared films during the film era of photography, IR filters can also be effectively and enjoyably used in infrared photography with nowadays DSLR cameras that no longer use films.

ASTRO
Originally developed to enhance red tints in color reversal film, red enhance filters have been largely used so far in landscape photography and portrait photography as well. In recent years red enhancer filters are also used to cut off unwanted light pollution.

Kyrgyzstan. @agarkov_foto made this long exposure shot using HOYA PRO ND1000 neutral density filter http://bit.ly/hoya_nd. It gave possibility to increase the exposure on 10 f-stops. To stabilize the camera during long exposure, the author used a tripod.

The photo of the winner in IFPC contest. Author used neutral density filter to lower the shutter speed and smooth the moving objects (like water and clouds). At the same time still objects (like buildings) remain sharp. To stabilize the camera during long exposure was used a tripod.

One of the IFPC' winner work. Shot made using ND-filter. 25 sec. exposure allowed to smooth waves into translucent mist. In addition was used a polarization filter which increased contrast and suppressed glares of the water. To stabilize the camera during long exposure, the author used a tripod.
