LEE Filters 100mm System Coral 12 Grad Soft Filter
The LEE Filters 100mm System Coral 12 Grad Soft Filter enables the photographer to selectively position the effect across the frame. Pinkish warm-up, redder than the 81 series.
Coral Filters were developed for the movie industry to give accurate colour temperature corrections with a bit of added red. Whilst the 80 Series of Filters were seen as giving “neutral” warmth, the Coral Range has become a popular alternative. The range is available in fourteen strengths – the higher the number the further the colour temperature is corrected.
Precise creative control
There is a place in landscape photography for both hard and soft grads. Which one you decide to use will depend mainly on the subject matter of your image.
As a general rule, a hard grad would be used for images containing a horizon, or any hard transition between the sky and the foreground - even with jagged or mountainous horizons, the exposure can be controlled far easier with a hard grad.
Soft grads perform best in woodland, mist, or interiors. Anywhere where there is no definite transition between sky and foreground, a soft grad will gently balance exposure across the image.
Coral Grads can be stacked together, or with other filters, so you can respond to almost any lighting situation.
