Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Specialty glass, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
One of Tiffin's most popular lines of glass…filters is its diffusion filters.…These are useful for doing things like hiding wrinkles…or adding atmospheric type of facts.…The ability to make the highlights bloom or…to soften some of the details in the shadows.…Diffusion is a great way to simplify the image…or add a bit of elegance.…I love using some of these digital versions…of both my stills and my video work.…In this case, I have a portrait opened up,…and I'll jump right to the diffusion category.…
You'll see here several different choices.…Let's start with some of the specialty glass…like Glimmerglass,…Pro-mist, Soft Effects and Diffusion.…Each of these here with a registered symbol…actually equate to very specific filters.…To begin, let's take a look at the Glimmerglass.…We'll zoom in a bit…to some of the facial details.…With each intensity,…you'll see that the Glimmerglass starts to boost…some of the highlights,…and some of the bronze Glimmerglass…is quite nice on skin tones.…
Let's do a split there…down the center of the photo.…
