The Tiffen Smoque filter is a true design of filtration magic created to add atmospheric ambiance to a scene.This simple yet effective filter should not be underestimated, as much of our cinematographic viewing memory is wrapped up in deep rich smoke filled environments. To create this kind of effect in an environment one simply has to reach for a Smoque filter, rather than having to wait for the effects team.
The Tiffen Fog Filter simulates the effects of natural fog or mist by creating a soft glow around highlights and lowering the overall contrast of the scene. There can also be a softening effect due to how the light interacts with the subject matter. Provides a fog-like effect with glowing highlights and lowered overall contrast.
Tiffen Double Fogfilters have milder flare and softening characteristics than standard Fog filters while exhibiting a much greater effect on contrast, especially in the stronger grades. A very thick natural fog will still allow close-up objects to appear sharp. So will a Double Fog filter. The key to the effect is the much lower contrast combined with a minimal amount of highlight flare.
New Tiffen Black Fog filters provide an overall atmospheric softening that creates a smooth wide flare from the highlights yet keeps the blacks, black without overly muting colors or losing detail in shadows.
New Tiffen Night Fog filters yield a natural fog effect with overall atmospheric softening and wide flare, coupled with unique contrast reduction technology that reduces highlights without darkening shadows.
