Filters for black and white photography perform a variety of filtration effects including contrast control, enhanced skin tones, tonal corrections and more dramatic landscapes. Although originally intended for use with black and white film, these filters can also be used as a creative tool in color imaging.
This medium yellow filter offers the most correct tonal range contrast to produce natural clouds against blue skies.
"Minus blue" cuts haze in aerial work; reduces excess blue of full moon in astrophotography. Recommended as a basic filter for use with Kodak Aero Ektachrome Infrared film.
Enhances landscapes, marine scenes and aerial photography with more dramatic effects than Yellow 8.

Tiffen filters are inexpensive enough to not really worry about if they get scratched. I'm replacing one that's almost thirty-five years old - it's fallen out of the mount so many times I can't count. The ring that holds the glass in finally gave out. Anyway, for less than twenty bucks, this filter is a steal. You need one if you shoot panchromatic black and white film, as it reduces excessive blue, and makes skies turn out naturally. Slight lightening of greens, but not excessive. If you shoot b/w a lot, just leave it on. FYI, if you shoot Fomapan 100, remove this filter, as Fomapan doesn't require a K2 filter (unlike most other b/w pan films).
