    Hi, im quite new to photography, but have been interested in the subject for quite some time. i recently obtained a star 8 filter, which i have been having fun with and am waiting to get the film processed. just wondering what other filters would be recommended for me to try out? and is it worth me investing in a red filter for B&W photography?

    What type of photography do you like to do? Is there an effect that you would like to get, that you can't get with the equipment you have now?

    I would suggest a circular polarizer filter. It can help to give your outdoor shots more vibrant, saturated colors, especially blue sky and green foliage. It can change the way water looks because you can adjust the amount of reflection that is recorded on the film.

    If you like to shoot black & white, it might be handy to have some colored filters. I think a basic set is red, yellow and maybe a green. Each will have a different effect based upon the color of your subject.
