    Agree with above. I go 1 stop for yellow, 2 stops for orange. Hasn't failed me yet!

    OK... thanks for the great advice and instruction. For starters I will adjust 1 stop and see how it turns out. Right now everything is cloudy and raining so I'm just shooting without the filter.

    Good! Our students will occasionally try to darken the sky with a filter on our typical dreary foggy days...then wonder why it didn't! LOL!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I've been told recently, by a "photographer", that you cannot use color filters on B&W.

    Regarding my original response I forgot to mention that I only use selenium cell meters. I never use built in meters due to the varying sensitivity of the electronic cells.

    That's a good plan, for more reasons than varying spectral sensitivty, to use one meter for all cameras.

    With a hand held meter, which I need to use all the time as none of the cameras I use has a built in meter, and using iso 400 as an example, I would set the meter at 200 for yellow, 100 for orange and 50 for red. keeps things nice and simple and works for me, and has done so for around 40 years.
