    Why use red filter anyway? Indoors you are already fighting for light levels, so use no filters. You'll get a better shutter speed for those candid moments.

    Technically you can shoot B&W outdoors without any filters. You use filters to enhance contrast/tonality, e.g. orange/red will darken the sky and foliage, yellow/green will slightly darken the sky and lighten foliage, etc.
