Tiffen Yellow #8 is commonly used for a noticeable increase in contrast with black and white films. Especially useful for added contrast between blue sky with clouds and foreground
Tiffen filters are not dyed, but are manufactured by using ColorCore technology. This process laminates the filter material between two pieces of optical glass and grinds down and polishes the glass. The glass is then mounted to the metal ring, which after that can be screwed onto the lens for the desired effect.
