    Is there much difference in the final print if you shot with a contrast filter compared to printing with the same type of filter?

    huge difference, very huge difference. always use filters when shooting if you would like to achieve a special effect.

    Talking about B&W, yellow filter=medium contrast and red filter=strong contrast? Is this rule of thumb correct when you shoot?
