Tiffen Pro Mist vs Smoque vs fog - 35mm

Tiffen Smoque (early 2000's) is like a large UltraCon, it reacts to mild sources in the frame, producing a hazy glow, but is challenging to see when there is no light in the shot. Will not impact sharpness a lot. The influence sharp A couple of cubic ft . {1000|One thousand|A thousand|1 can disappear when somebody blocks the light-weight supply in the frame for a instant and reappear once they very clear.


Tiffen ProMist (mid-1980's) was a glass model of the briefly well-liked plastic Wilson SupaFrost (or SupraFrost, I have noticed it spelled equally methods) -- it softens the image a bit whilst leading to highlights to glow. Typically mixed with blacks specks (Black ProMist) to restore some loss of contrast. Schneider helps make a White Frost and Black Frost which are comparable. A Tiffen GlimmerGlass is fundamentally a Black ProMist with silver specks rather of black.


Fog (numerous, mostly Harrison or Tiffen) dates back again to the early times, prior to 1940 at minimum, but has been improved more than the decades, but typically the design dates back now to the 1970's. Mist particles trigger highlights to glow. In some techniques, it was not designed to soften detail like a ProMist was, just fog the highlights, but the character of the particles sprayed on a layer (I feel sandwiched in between glass) triggers some blurring of detail / distinction reduction, a milky impact... and that can get stronger dependent on how the light hits the topic or filter... this inconsistency in impact/power thanks to the more mature layout is one particular reason why individuals prefer ProMist. I have also discovered that the glow all around lights can get on a blue-ish forged with Fogs, but are neutral with ProMists. However, I believe of Fog as a 1970's appear and ProMist as a 1980's look and have a tendency to use them appropriately.


It really is tough to explain to in manipulated b&w stills what filters could have been employed.


"Tess" is a excellent case in point of the use of Fog filters:
