Thread: Star filter tips using any lens filter (Free)

    Default Star filter tips using any lens filter (Free)

    This is for anyone who likes star effect without spending money on a star effect filter.

    What you need as follows:
    1) Your existing lens filter. (I am using the cheapest Hoya UV filter here.)
    2) Your oil on your nose.

    Use your finger and rub some oil from your nose and draw a cross on your lens filter.

    would sharpness be sacrificed because of the diffused light?

    As long as you don't smudge the whole lens should be fine.

    Saw my friend use black construction paper and cut out shapes and scotch tape to the lens for fun too. Digitalrev just did a video about this kind of playing around too
