The Lee 4x6" Color Graduated Straw 3 Resin filter enhances reality, adding a touch of subtlety or drama to the image. This filter gives you the ability to add more "punch" to an otherwise ordinary scene. Lee Graduated filters give you the control you need to create a scene as opposed to just shooting a scene.
With graduated filters, often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes.
Sometimes it is also desirable to add color to part of the photograph. For example, to add blue to only the sky. Lee Color Graduated filters are half-color, half-clear, with a graduated transition for blending into the scene. They are available in an array of colors. The Soft or Hard label indicates the degree of color graduation. Horizontal/Vertical indicates the direction of the graduation.
Note: The 6" length allows for adjustment of the filter within the filter holder
