Pinewood Studios, London UK, 29th October 2015: Tiffen International will be attending and exhibiting at the 23rd Camerimage Cinematography Festival in Bydgoszcz, Poland from November 14th to the 21st. Camerimage is a unique opportunity for Directors of Photography, Cinematographers, Camera Assistants and Students to network, view and learn about the craft, techniques and working practices employed in all the genres of cinematographic expression including feature films, documentaries and music videos. The festival has competitions running in all these fields plus workshops and seminars conducted by leading companies and luminaries.

Tiffen’s Black Pearlescent filters create a subtle new look and a special atmosphere by softening excess sharpness and contrast. Designed with its original Pearlescent predecessor in mind, the Black Pearlescent filter adds a crisp halo to spectacular highlights and gently softens the overall image with a smooth glow.

Tiffen’s Black GlimmerGlass filter offers all of the same classic beauty-enhancing qualities as the original GlimmerGlass filter with even more subtlety. It softens fine details by adding a unique mild glow to highlights removes harsh sharpness from modern lenses and adds a pleasing overall blending to contrast levels.

Tiffen’s Black Soft/FX. Using a pattern of tiny ‘lenslets,’ Soft/FX filter lineup puts fine image elements such as wrinkles and blemishes out of focus while sharpening larger details. The Black Soft/FX filter, the latest addition, adds a special touch by giving photos a continuous softening effect with increasing atmospheric haze.
