Filters for black and white photography Aulomacolor-BW


Color filters are a great aid for photographers who take black and white photographs. Aulomacolor-BW filters whether used on analog or digital cameras have a significant impact on the tone, saturation and contrast of the photograph, depending on how the images are captured. Masters of photography have used photographic filters to increase the contrast between the sky and clouds or between the rocks and the sea. Although the use of photographic filters produces spectacular effects, you need to know how they work. The photographic filter works as a barrier that blocks some wavelengths of light and modifies others, so depending on the color of the filter, in a black and white photograph, some shades of gray will be darkened while others, such as those of the portrayed objects of a color similar to the filter used, will be strongly lightened. An example are the two photos below where the same dark green glass vase is portrayed on a black fabric background and illuminated with artificial light. As you can see, without the use of the filter the vase appears almost the colour of the background, while applying a green filter the vase appears almost white. The photo was taken with our pinhole camera Magnificat 4x5.
