Many techniques have been developed for diffusing or softening images, whether to create a mood in a landscape or portrait or simply as an aid to make people look glamorous.

The Pro-Mist filter is a popular motion picture effect that creates a special "atmosphere" by softening excess sharpness and contrast.  It generates a pearlescent halo around highlights.  Lighter grades are useful in toning down the excessive sharpness and contrast of contemporary film and lens combinations.

The Warm Pro-Mist combines the benefits of the widely acclaimed Pro-Mist with the Tiffen exclusive 812 color warming filter.  It is useful in outdoor open shade situations where there is excessive blue in the image and when total control over lighting may not be possible. The Warm Pro-Mist eliminates pale, washed out skintones and can help balance contrasting skintones within one scene.  Neutral colors remain unaffected.

The Black Pro-Mist offers all the benefits of the Pro-Mist filter in a more subtle form.  Highlight flares are controlled.  Contrast is lowered, but with less lightening of shadows for a more delicate effect.  Tones down excessive sharpness to create the "film look".


The Warm Black Pro-Mist offers the dramatic benefits of the Black Pro-Mist plus the added warmth of the exclusive Tiffen 812 filter.  It conveys a warm, romantic feeling and eliminates blue cast for a pleasing effect. 


Tiffen filters are available in wide range of sizes and densities to meet your needs.
