Apart from black and white, do you think other color variations affect how you interpret photos? Here is a series of the same photo in many different filters from Instagram.
What do you think about the subtle changes in color and contrast? Filters are super popular on social media. Check out the article "How Instagram Filters Work, And Can You Tell The Difference?" Which filters are your favorites?
Ask members if they take photos with smartphones. Ask if they use filters. Call on someone to explain what a filter is. Ask if anyone has a favorite filter. Get those who respond to explain why they like their preferred filters. Don’t forget to participate in the discussion and talk about how you take pictures and if you like filters. If you are truly unfamiliar with filters, tell members and ask them to teach you.
