K&F Warm UV Filter for Portrait Photography
The blue coating on this lens reflects a small amount of cool light and lets warm tones through. This takes some coldness out of images while enhancing enhances skin tonalities. The effect is subtle enough to improve your portraiture work while leaving your other shots relatively un-affected.
If you leave your camera set to auto white balance, the camera should do a good job of compensating for the tint. If you want to enhance a portrait shot switch to manual white balance and dial it in to match your shooting environment. This will cause the camera to use a pre-set colour temperature upon which the filters effect will additionally be applied.
In this way you can use the lens with the filter in place for all your normal photography while auto white balance is activated. When you want to capture faces with richer skin tone, flip the white balance to the appropriate white balance for your shooting environment and benefit from the warming effect.
This filter also filters UV light as well. A UV filter is seen by many professionals as an essential piece of equipment. It serves two functions. It protects the front element of the lens. It can also enhance the picture quality of your captured images. Attaching a filter to the front of your lens protects your lens from dirt, scratches, fingerprints, and accidental damage
A filter, like this 49mm warming UV filter, screws onto the thread found at the front of your lens. Once attached, it sits unobtrusively in front of your lenses front element. In order for it to be unobtrusive, you will want a filter with a slim profile, like this K&F Classic Slim series filter. This super slim and lightweight aluminium frame effectively avoids dark corners when shooting at wide angles.
When in place it can protect the front element from being touched. This will keep it free from fingerprints and oils. It is also a bit of a shield against dirt, dust or mud getting onto the lens. While using your equipment out in the field the warming UV filter will protect the lens from accidental scratches and guard the lens front element from chips and scratches.
Apart from the protection a UV filter provides it can also offer optical advantages. As the name suggests it also filters out UV (ultraviolet) light. UV light can result in a bluish colour cast in images. Filtering out UV light can reduce haze in images while improving contrast for a clearer picture.
