Product Description

Size: 58mm

Product Description

Filters for black and white photography perform a variety of filtration effects including contrast control, enhanced skin tones, tonal corrections and more dramatic landscapes. Although originally intended for use with black and white film, these filters can also be used as a creative tool in color imaging. Yellow 8 This medium yellow filter offers the most correct tonal range contrast to produce natural clouds against blue skies. Yellow 12 "Minus blue" cuts haze in aerial work; reduces excess blue of full moon in astrophotography. Recommended as a basic filter for use with Kodak Aero Ektachrome Infrared film. Yellow 15 Enhances landscapes, marine scenes and aerial photography with more dramatic effects than Yellow 8.

Use to enhance landscapes, marine scenes, and aerial photography.

Customer Reviews

Works well with black & white photography as promised.

The first filter was heavily contaminated with fungus with grainy and splotched surface.

And a stronger orange or red will darken green foilage too much.

This Tiffen filter seems just as good as more expensive ones from hi-falutin' manufacturers. At least, it produces fine results for me. Tiffen has been making filters of all kinds for a long time, and by now they've got it right. I don't see any reason to spend more for what is, essentially, a disc of high-quality glass.

First off I have many filters from Tiffen(and Hoya). Tiffens are good quality without being expensive. The #15 deep yellow does just what I need in B&W photography. A weaker yellow filter will not darken a blue sky as much. And a stronger orange or red will darken green foilage too much. But the deep yellow darkens skies enough and does not darken greens like the red or orange. Another plus is this filter will not absorb as much light as a red or orange. It's my "go to" filter in B&W for most outdoor shots.

Size Name: 82mm Verified Purchase
Ordered this filter in 82 mm diameter to increase contrast to my B&W film photos. This Wratten #15 yellow filter darkens blue color casts and brightens yellow and some green colors. This is especially useful for landscape photographers to achieve better cloud formations and less dark grass/foliage patterns. It worked perfectly as I expected. I also found that by adding this yellow filter on top of my lens that it helped me to focus on the composition while not being distracted by the regular color range in the viewfinder of my film camera.

Additionally to this filter, I recommend buying step-up rings if you have lenses with smaller lens diameters. Then you can use this filter also on your smaller 77, 72, or 67 mm lenses for example.

This filter creates drama where none seems to exist. You will bring out the clouds like you picture them in your mind to appear. Creates a natural feeling of contrast without overdoing it.
