The Tiffen 49mm Enhancing Filter is a combination of rare earth elements in glass. It removes a portion of the spectrum in the orange region, increasing the colour saturation of reddish objects by eliminating the muddy tones and maximising the red hues with minimal effect on other colours.
We all love Autumn. When the leaves begin to change colour, we're all left breathless by their eternal beauty. Capturing those stunning colours on film or digital becomes a priority for any avid photographer. The Enhancing filter is a most valuable tool when it comes to this kind of nature photography. An Enhancer increases the saturation of the red/orange end of the spectrum and makes earth tones thoroughly saturated and vibrant. Colours appear to "pop".
You will find that the Enhancing filter works best in early morning or later afternoon photography - when the light is intense rather than the semi-washed out illumination of mid-day. This filter is also optimised for use during the overcast days of Autumn. Try it on an old barn or wooden bridge.
Tiffen makes the Enhancing filter in many sizes to accommodate the many uses this filter has. This filter can be used by the pro and amateur alike, weekend photo warrior or pro cinematographer and must be considered an essential addition to any photo arsenal.
Tiffen, a leader in the filter industry, proudly makes its filters in the USA and backs up its products with a solid 10-year warranty.
