Issue one of Formatt In Focus Sprint 2019
Formatt-Hitech would like to thank you for visiting our stand at Photokina, Cologne.
I am making a stand to be intentional with my images, and these filters help me do just that.
The following paper has been written to give anyone interested in photography and ND filter usage an insight into how filter design has developed over the years. I have tried to keep it as informative as possible without being overly technical.
“I guess the main reason was because I worked hard in the past,” said Fraser after I asked him how the opportunity to shoot a Star Wars film was presented to him.

While there is great truth to this, there is another crucial element to consider that we cinematographers may sometimes forget--It's also about what goes in front of the glass.
Now I’m actually glad that I previously procrastinated, otherwise I’d have purchased the Lee set & missed out on this fantastic piece of kit, so the morale of my story is that on the odd occasion procrastination is good !!
These filters are just superb! I didn't think I would've had so much fun using them and the results are outstanding, as you would expect from such a pedigree.
