The 5.65 x 5.65” Light Red #23A Glass Filter from Tiffen is used for black and white photography. This filter performs a variety of filtration effects including contrast control, enhanced skin tones, tonal corrections, and creating more dramatic landscapes. In addition, this filter can also be used as a creative tool in color imaging. This light red filter produces contrast effects that darken the sky and water, for rendering a more dramatic, architectural photography.
The filter is manufactured using Tiffen’s ColorCore technology, a process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between 2 pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision metal rings.
