I see stars! *_*

There was a guy at a rummage sale a few weeks back that was selling old camera filters for 1‚ā¨ a piece. I couldn't resist buying some to try them out ūüėĄ

I got one that turns light reflections into stars and another one that kind of blurs your image a bit. Here are my first images with them.

The manual of this filter said it could be used for portrait photography, because it leads to a smoother skin. So of course my boyfriend was my (un)willing subject to try it out. I don't know though, to me it just looks really blurry xD

Conclusion: I really like the star effect. I'm not so sure about the blurry filter though :p Do you guys have any ideas for what it could be used?

The stars apparently do work fine, the blur ... well, it's blurry, not smoothening smile

Yes I think the effect must have been different on film, or maybe it has degraded or something. Anyway, I can't imagine this is what it's supposed to look like laughing The manual clearly stated it could be used for portrait photography :p

Maybe the kind of photography David Hamilton did (but without vaseline on the lense) ?

Oh I didn't know him. But I just looked him up and that looks pretty good! :)

My ex was very much into his "romantic" (and hazy) photography, hence I know him. I'm not really an expert on the work of famous photographers smile

Yeah, but take a photo of an eye chart using the blurry filter.  Then show it to your friends.  Tell them the letters are perfectly clear in your photo.  grinning
