Built-In Black and White Filters

Like many photographers, Black and White Imaging is a technique used for many photos.

  • Street Photography
  • Portraits
  • Night Cityscape’s

To name a few. In the Film Heydays, we used “Colored” filters to control the scene contrast.

Yellow and Red where the most popular, and Green was next.

  • A Yellow Filter will darken BLUE (Skies)… It will Lighten Yellow.  With Nice Clouds in a blue sky, the darker blue effect will bring out the clouds.
  • A Red has stronger effect than a Yellow Filter
  • A Green Filter will lighten Green Plants, useful with B&W Portraits with tall shrubbery in the background.
