  • Color Filter

    > Color Filter

    Use color filters in Exposure 5 to augment your photos. In B&W photography, color filters manipulate the image's tones just like a filter placed over the end of the lens. When used with color film, they add color casts to an image mimicking the coloring behavior of expired analogue film or the staining or yellowing that occurs in aging prints.
