Using NATural ND filters are perfect for capturing the colors of those newly bloomed flowers and revitalized landscapes. These filters allow you to capture what you see without any color shift or compromise. Spring is such a beautiful time of year to take pictures, so there is no reason to alter what you see with your own eyes. A lot of other ND’s shift images by adding green, gray, or blue tints, but our NATural ND’s allow you to capture exactly what is in front of your camera.
NAT ND’s come in circular, and MPTV Sizes. They are also available for the Inspire 2 Drone in 46MM. All are made in the U.S.A. with Water White Glass for exceptional color neutrality and increased clarity.
Some other filters we recommend for this type of Spring photography are close filters, especially for blossoming flowers. Both Pro-Mists and Fog Filters will soften colors and create soft glowing highlights, just like Renoir and Monet impressionist landscapes – which to us represents Spring so beautifully.

With the warmer weather just around the corner, getting up early to snap the sunrise will become a little less daunting than it does during those cold winter mornings. Our Graduated Sunrise Filter gives you the ability to add more “punch” to an otherwise regular scene - the yellow-orange filter will bring more “drama” to any sunrise.
We also recommend using the Color Graduated Blue Filter for sunrise or sunset images. This filter will turn either situation into a more striking and brilliant image. What is especially special about this filter is it will add color selectively while leaving the rest of the scene unaffected and untouched.
If you’re looking for a MPTV filter for sunrise or sunset images, the 4 x 4 Sunset Soft Edge Graduated Filter or our 4 x 4 Skyfire Graduated Filter will do wonders to enhance any sunset or sunrise you are shooting. It will add an orange and yellow tint to compliment any existing sunrise or sunset within in a scene. It will also enhance a hazy or colorless sky on those gloomier Spring mornings.

If you usually use round filters but want to try both the 4 x 4 Sunset and Skyfire filter, you can always use a Pro100 Series Filter holder to accommodate for this!
All the above filters are proudly made in the U.S.A. and come with a 10-year warranty.

Spring means graduation is right around the corner! If you’re in the business of taking senior pictures or graduation pictures, or any type of portrait in general, there are many Tiffen filters that will enhance any images you’re producing for your clientele.
Diffusion filters like the Black Pro- Mist, Pro-Mist, Glimmerglass, Black-Satin, and Pearlescent Filters will reduce the appearance and blemishes, soften highlights and lower contrast. Some of these filters like the Glimmerglass or Black Satin even add glow and sparkle to your work for added confidence and a slight striking effect.
