How to use colored filters to shoot black and white photography

So this is something new for me as well, I had previously only tried converting raw photos to black and white. Apparently using different colored filters can enhance the contrast between certain colors such as red, orange, green and blue as those colors under regular conversion would all be very similar greys.

The below article explains this very clearly and provides comprehensive examples of what each one does, I just ordered a red filter online to try this out on with my 35mm lens!

Stay tuned for sample photos!
