 Post subject: Sunrise filter?
PostPosted: Sun May 04, 2008 10:27 am 
I was just wondering if anyone knew of any such filter? I imagine it would be pink/purple grad.

I've checked the obvious manufacturers (Cokin, Hoya, B&W), but to no avail.

I will be going to Rhodes soon and I intend on shooting quite a lot at sunrise, so this filter would be amazing.

Weeeell, anyone who was around in the 80s will remember criminal over-use of the graduated tobacco filter to give skies a deep orange appearence. And yes, I admit it, I loved it, even though it was in almost every episode of Miami Vice and any Bruckheimer movie production.

But these days I wouldn't personally use an optical filter apart from a polariser - I'd do it all digitally, as at least your original is untouched.

But of you fancy some retro fun, then get yourself a graduated tobacco filter - and remember to fix your white balance or it'll try and compensate for it (and good taste!)
