    I just purchased a 52mm Hoya Red (25A) filter today, and it seems pretty cool. My problem is... HOW THE HECK DO I USE IT?! Haha. It seems that every photo I shoot turns out alright, then when I convert it to black and white, it looks REALLY underexposed, and some shades turn flat gray. Anyone got any tips on how to make my black and whites better with the filter!?

    Thanks,

    Ivan

    Anytime you put on a colored filter, you have to compensate for the light loss. If you look on the back of the filter case, you will see that it calls for around (I am recalling from memory here) 3 stops. This should bring you back into the right exposure level.
