    are you talking about a crosshatch filter that makes lights look pointy?

    those are ok. i would go with your basics like, polarizing, and ND, and (for black and white) an orange filter.

    Go for a UV filter - you can make a ND filter out of it by spraying hairspray on it, and it washes off with a bit of water.

    I think i saw it in Porters catalog they make a make shif cable release for cameras that are not made for one it is basically a velcro strap with a normal cable release that goes around the shutter release on the camera and when the cable release is pressed it presses the shutter release button on the camera. It sounds ghetto but it might work.

    I would love to start experimenting with some filters and have never
    used anything much. Just some softening ones, ... something like that.
    But I am interested in filters say like when I am taking pictures of
    a senior and we are in the sun....is there a filter for that?
    You mentioned ND, orange, polarizing. Will you explain?
    Thanks a bunch. Also one more question....are these expensive?

    Thanks again.

    A neutral density filter is just like putting on sunglasses. It doesn't change the colors but if you are out on a bright day with fast fil they work good to get a slower shutter speed. Polarizing filters take the reflection off of non-metalic object, most notably water, and help to deepen the color of the sky. Orange filters help increase the contrast when using black and white.
