Sorry for my rambunctious models. This is a quick test of the Tiffen Pro Mist Black 1/2 grade filter. I wanted a 1/4 or 1/8th but this is the only one I found in town.
Most noticeable is the reducing the dark shadows and lifting them. It also softens the image more too and softens the highlights some.
Most people recommend this filter (in 1/8 or 1/4) to make it more "film like".
