I was recommended by a friend to use two kinds of filters for a project. i need the LeeFilters, Soft Reflector and LeeFilters Natural Density FrostLight.

i am not an expert in this field and i have been looking around to get these filters but to no avail. i can find them online though but those are not from local stores. does anyone know where i can get these two filters? and maybe you could also recommend filters that are close or same as each of the two filters.

thanks!! :)

Go Cathay photo at peninsular to check. It aint cheap as a decent set with one filter for one lens would cost about $400 (holder, filter, mount adaptor ring). For varied filter effects and to fit onto a few lens diameter, be prepared to invest more. What you might need should be in the region of $600 with some change. With the change, get a suitable cleaning kit by Lee as well.

cokin is the cheaper alternative and really affordable. But if your job dictates specialised accessories and is sufficient to cover cost of such investment, go for Lee. They make one of the finest filters especially for film cameras.

With everything going digital, the trend is steered towards getting a raw shot and tweek in the digital darkroom for desired results. This is just my humble opinion and is not directed at any specific group or brand type.

Have fun searching.

WOW! $600 is very expensive!

i am not sure if i am using the right term(filters) but i suppose the soft reflector is a kind of silver reflecting cloth or paper that will reflect light and the natural density frostlight is another kind of semi-transparent paper that will diffuse light.
are these going to be over hundred dollars as well?

Anything from Lee will cost a premium except for their cleaning kit.

Maybe you wanto check them out here (prices in usd):

Suggest you go ask your friend/client if this is the type of accessories you need. Cokin set can be gotten for less than sgd100, which may not be that bad after all. But if its a very well paid job, why not go for Lee?

Your next best substitute would be photoshop. Honestly, your client wont tell the difference on print unless they are from the print/media trade.

Just my honest opinion and hope you wont take it to heart.
