i shot still tests once with various coloured filters : tobacco, chocolate, straw, sepia ....
when i did these tests, i measured the light loss according to each filter and just compensate everyone of them.
for the tobacco ones i compensate 1 stop 1/3 for the #1 1 stop 2/3 #2 and nearly 3 stops for the #3.
my results were convincing but i was told that i don't need to compensate totally to achieve a more pronounced effect.
i love the warm brownish kind-of-burned tint you get with the tobacco. and i would like to have a good effect with only the #1 or maybe #2.
how will you rate it ? just 1 stop for compensation ? less than that ?
