Day For Night
Create nighttime in the middle of the day with Tiffen's Day For Night filters. The filters simulate moonlight using a specific shade of lavender to produce visual coolness while maintaining realistic flesh tones. A low-contrast element is also added because the ability to see detail at night is diminished by lower light. The filters are available in 37mm to 82mm screw-mount sizes. List Price: Varies by size.
