Light Balancing Filters
Light balancing filters do just that. They balance out the light. Light balancing filters are used in black and white photography, but are also used in color photography. These filters are available in two series. The 81 series are yellowish colored filters and are used to lower the color temperature light sources. The 82 series of filters are bluish in color and are used for raising the color temperatures of light sources. Both series of filters are for use when a tungsten light source is being used with color film. These filters are ideal to prevent photos from having a cold feel to them on overcast and dull days or in shaded areas on sunny days. Light balancing filters can range in price from about $80 to $250. They are available in various sizes and various brands. Light balancing filters are definitely worth the investment.
