Every Fall, I start carrying a very special filter called an Intensifier Filter. This unique Hoya filter enhances warm colors (reds, oranges and even browns) to make them really pop while the cool colors remain unchanged. The above photo was taken only seconds apart. The only difference is the one on the right was taken with the Intensifier Filter. The warm colors are pulled out and accentuated.
Hoya actually offers three different intensifier filters – One for Red, one for Blue and one for Green. All of these photos were taken with the original Red Intensifier. Independently, you probably would not notice the color difference. The differences in each photo are subtle. But, side-by-side, the differences are clear. Fall colors really pop with the Intensifier Filter. These filters are available at retailers like Adorama and B&H, as well as online.
