    Ok I bought a UV lens, a polarizer, and a red lens.. Do I put them all on at once? and does it matter what order? Sorry like I said I am knew at this!

    They are called filters. I would suggest you leave them off the camera until you learn what they do.

    In general try to avoid stacking filters. Keep the UV on all the time, except when you are using the red.

    Definitely!
    The more filters you are stacking, the qualitiy of your pictures won`t be better!
    My personal limit ist about two filters. The UV + a polarizer for example.

    I leave the UV on my lenses at all times. It cuts haze and I use it to protect my lens. Filters are cheap if they get scratched

    You might find an Intro to Filters helpful. The pol filter can be used for b&w or color; the red is for b&w (or infra-red) only. Try to use as few filters at a time as possible.
