Schneider Optics Golden Sepia is a rich warm color. As a solid color it gives a period look like in old photographs. Golden Sepia graduated filters can be used to enhance an evening sky, or when used inverted they can enhance a landscape, warming cornfields or desert sand, without affecting the sky color.
This filter is available in strengths of 1, 2, and 3. These strengths achieve a subtle, moderate, or bold effect.
Schneider makes both soft-edge(SE) and hard-edge(HE) Graduated Color filters. Typically, soft-edge filters are used with wide to medium-angle lenses because these lenses have greater depth of field. Hard-edge filters are preferred for use with telephoto lenses or for bold transitions.
