My company has some filters that I'd like to test out, to see what they do. I was thinking of getting a friend to be a model, and do a basic three-point-lighting setup with a few different lenses (maybe my 16mm, 35mm, and 85mm lenses), and do some tests by shining a light into the camera to see what they do to flares and lights.

 

Any suggestions on what kind of setups I should shoot, what to look for, and general tips? I'm sure I could find these tests online, but I want to play with the filters myself and see the effects.

What kind of filters are you testing? color, diffusion, ND, contrast, streak? there are thousands of them, hard to say what to look for if you are just testing filters at random :)
