Photography Question 
Angie M. Nemanic


What will happen to the Black and White film if I use an 81a filter. I know to use it when I'm using non-tungsten color film, but I'm wondering what effect this filter has on black and white.

Will it turn all my photos blue?

  No, just changes the contrast. Like colors of the filter will appear lighter shades of gray in black and white. Reds and yellows will probably look darker gray.
