Thread: is it possible to block part of the lens in order to create fading effect?

  1. #1

    Question is it possible to block part of the lens in order to create fading effect?

    For example when you want to create a foggy/fading scene above sea level?

    Hair gel on top of the filter. Could give a nice blur foggy effect.

    Even if I do not agree with you, I will always fight for you to have your say.

    Or if you want the safe way (will include some expenditure), just buy a soft-filter. Price will depend on diameter.

    Nail polish or hair spray on top half of an UV filter would do the trick too.

    becos kopitiam have high traffic

    cokin have fog 1, fog 2 can do this effect,

    hair spray will have the similar effect as cokin fog filter

    Vaseline or wet jelly will give you soft look, apply on where you want it.

    stockings and plastic bags are good on people

    all these DIY thingy are ancient old tricks
