What do you imagine when you hear the term “photographic filter”? Probably the names of smart applications are starting to spin in your mind? However, on a smartphone, the photographic filters are only simulated, and the program applies the
effect of the selected filter to the already captured image. But do you know that you can create such a transformed photographic image without digital technology, using photographic filters that have been long favoured by photographers? Filters used in non-digital photography are transparent or semi-transparent optical elements made of glass, plastic, or gelatine that correct light transmitted through the camera lens to enhance, improve, or alter the photographic image.
When you visit the roof terrace of the Photography Museum, you will find a variety of photographic filters with descriptions. Try to look at the environment through them and observe how it changes. Then take a filter, stick it to your smartphone lens, take a photo and create your own photo effect!
