Velvia with Warm Mist filter
ylw-text.gif Velvia with Warm Mist filter Since these pictures were taken at night, a tripod was used. The lack of bright light requires a long exposure, but I also "stop down" the aperture to f/16 or f/32 in order to make sure everything is in focus. These usually result in exposures of about 30 seconds for this scene here. (Note: this is not a general rule; it just happened to be bright due to all the extra lights.) The Warm Mist filter is a combination of a standard Mist filter and a Tiffen 812 (adding 10 pts. red). This helps bring out the warmer tones in the lights near the bottom of of the bridge, but also keeps the fluourescent lights from turning too green. (This applies to film only, not digital.) The "mist" part of the filter gives everything that halo effect you sometimes see in ads featuring wine and cheese.
