The Z-Pro Black and White filter kit includes four useful filters for controlling contrast and colour rendering in black and white photography. The Yellow, Orange and Red filters will progressively add contrast between blue sky and clouds and the Green filter will lighten foliage and reveal more detail and texture. Filter holder and adapters are not included.
Black and white films tend to be more sensitive to the blue end of the spectrum, which is why some filtration is required for shots including sky. The Yellow will be ideal for a strong blue sky; for weaker UK skies the Orange will often work better, and the Red will provide dramatic contrast.
Be aware that these filters will tend to lighten the same colours in a photo, so the Red is often useful for revealing detail in brickwork, just as the Green does in foliage. The Green sometimes helps add a more pleasing skin tone in portraits (i.e. a fake suntan).
These filters can be adapted to the new Cokin NX Filter Holder by using NX Filter Frames 100x100. As well as adding drop protection, the frames avoid fingerprints on the filter surface.
