I've been looking into getting some Low-Con filters to play around with some potential looks for an upcoming project I have.
I've briefly used some DigiCon's before, but not extensively.
Wanted to know what everyone's opinions are on the various forms of LowCon filtering - DigiCon, Black Mist, Black Satin etc. Do you personally like them/what has been your experience using them? Would you prefer to lower contrast in-camera with a filter, or do it in post? Are there major advantages to doing it in-camera vs post, other than seeing in-camera what the final effect looks like?
As far as I'm aware these filters also have halation properties? So creating a "softness" around light sources?
I'm mostly interested in a subtle effect so would likely be wanting a 1/8 or 1/4.
In terms of filter-stacking does it matter where in the stack these sit?
Thanks in advance for any discussion/advice
