Camera lens filters are important in digital photography. More people have their personal DSLR cameras in their household. The study developed an improvised filters utilizing cheap materials that are available in the local outlet retailers. Once the materials are purchased, these filters can be prepared and done at home. Cutting and pasting are the skills needed to create the filter. The camera was operated in full manual mode so the photographer was able to control the photography. Visual quality of the shots were exhibited and evaluated. Evaluation of the filters was presented into three different areas of focus; (1) Rating as to color enhancing, center spot and rainbow filters; (2) Quality of the filter effects to the photography; and (3) Correct exposure, focus and clarity of the photos. Photography instructors and practitioners evaluated the outputs and presented their comments and suggestions.
