I have most recently received a large collection of color filter lenses for my dslr canon t5 camera. Recently, a friend of mine and a highly skilled photographer mentioned that color filters are useless to him because all the color effects done with the filter can be done with adobe effects software on a computer with the base unedited footage in tact. Since I already have after effects and other software such as hitfilm, do you think my purchase was worth it? Are there any pros of using color filters rather than editing the color in post?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
