Designed to enhance your talents’ natural beauty by suppressing facial blemishes and wrinkles on today’s lenses, Tiffen’s new Satin and Black Satin filters offer subtle softening to fine details, with minimal signs of filtration. The combination of mild halation and delicate optical softening elements adds a gentle glow to highlights and moderates contrast. Satins produce a cleaner, muted diffusion compared to Black Satins, which produce a warmer, grainier feel. Both filter types have been designed to offer fine control over your images by maintaining an apparent clear, in-focus image.
