    What do you think would be a good 1st filter to try out? now that im used to my camera, im ready to take a step up. i figured that filter would be a good cheep way to go. Next i think would be a lens. anyway i have a cannon 2000 rebel with a 28-70 sigma lens. Thanks!!!

    I'd say go for a polarising filter, they're really usefull for most subjects but I dont know much about filters. I have a polarising and a uv, to protect the lens.

    probably UV. or like already said, a polarizer.


    or if you like black and white, try some yellows or oranges, or even a red.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Polarizers by themselves do a couple of things. They cut most of the reflection, make colors richer and skies deeper blue. Oh yeah... That's three!

    Also, when coupled with a warming filter (I thought that's what you meant by 'colored') it produces warmer and rich color pics.
