Kenko Black Mist No. 05 Camera Lens Filter
Black Mist is an optical glass soft filter infused with fine black diffusing material. It suppresses highlight and shadow contrast, providing a soft image. Without requiring a retouch, you are able to create movie-like photographs with Black Mist.
To position this as a cinematic effect filter, we adopted the TRAJAN alphabet font that has commonly been used in movie titles, posters and television shows since 1990.
ENHANCED NIGHT LIGHTING
Softly bleeds lighting within night time photography, producing a cinematic atmosphere. The warmth of Black Mist filters is felt immensely within rain settings. Street lamps and large light sources may be greatly emphasised with the Black Mist No.1 and other soft filters, whereas No.05 provides an appropriate diffused effect.
CINEMATIC BACKLIT PHOTOS
Regardless of back lighting, the photo is not whitened, with highlight and shadow contrast limited to create a soft image.
Light is softened, producing a unique Black Mist mood.
Contrast is weak within portrait photos, making skin appear smooth as if a veil was laid over it.
SUNSHINE FILTERING IN TREE FOLIAGE
Black Mist No.05 has a strong role in improving the atmosphere of landscape photography. The sunlight filtering through the tree foliage has been greatly enhanced.
Increasing the exposure has created a soft and transcendent light.
Given the weak contrast, taking shots around windows with natural light will produce a unique atmosphere.
