Filters are like auto-pilot for thinking critically, and visually, about one’s surroundings. The obstacles that they remove are precisely the obstacles that promote learning and a more discerning appreciation of what makes a good photo.
Not necessarily. The way that today’s photo apps have made “one-click” filters a breeze maybe encourages such “auto-pilot” behaviour - without having one really practice creativity, choice, deliberation, and composition. But there are still many photographers that do use filters with discernment and slow intention.
