I don't use colored filters. I will use a Tiffen circular polarizer on occasion to remove the glare and saturate colors already present, but other than that I usually do not use a filter. Some times I use a ND (neutral density) filter but more and more I am doing the balancing digitally.

Thanks to my uncle Nick I've had the opportunity to work with many formats of cameras. From 35mm, all the way up to Large Format (4x5) view cameras. For a long time Medium Format (MF) was my primary choice. It provided good portability and still yielded spectacular image quality. Today, the higher end digital cameras have progressed to the point of such incredible quality that I am shooting purely digital and couldn't be happier with the silky smooth yet incredibly detailed capture.
