If you're shooting a portrait of a woman, this filter can be used to cover up minor facial blemishes while also establishing a soft, ethereal quality and giving the image added impact.  

Heliopan has been a leader in the filter industry since 1949. They are known for their high quality and production standards. Their slim mounts facilitate using them with wider angle lenses. Heliopan offers most of their filters with either their standard hard coating or with their industry leading SH-PMC 16 layer multi-coating that transmits over 99.5% of the light striking it on to the image plane for the lowest flare and greatest color saturation.

Note:
Heliopan Soft Focus filters available in grades 0 and 1, with 1 having the greater effect
Heliopan filters are "dyed in the mass" and ground, polished and coated to the highest standards of the German optical industry
All Heliopan screw-in type and series size filters are mounted in precision black anodized brass rings to eliminate binding or cross threading and to ensure optimal alignment
