The Hitech 4x5" Color Graduated Clear Tobacco 3 Filter is one of the most interesting filters Hitech produces. It 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. Hitech 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. Hitech 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. Whether at the pro or Photo 1 level, Hitech filters have always been the industry's first choice.
Note: Hitech Graduated Tobacco filters come in strengths from 1-3 with 3 having the greatest effect.
Adding color excitement to a drab sky
Changing the specific color in a scene to create a desired special effect
Enhancing the existing color or creating subtle color drama
Creating more balanced exposure in uneven lighting conditions
