YES!!! You got it!!espn said:I know liao... defocus the focusing ring.
Just came back to my mind when I bought a Nikon Soft-1 earlier and a more experienced friend of mine commented, Soft-2 is as good as defocusing the focus ring.lsisaxon said:YES!!! You got it!!
It was shot at around 1/30s and while shooting, the focusing ring was turned. Very much like a radial zoom effect.
I remembered quite some time back, this was implemented in the camera body by some manufacturer (can't remember which one). Canon has one which uses 2 exposures, one in focus and one out. But this was done purely on one exposure and defocusing during the exposure.
I think he probably meant literally shooting it out of focus. Actually, I personally like the effect which Soft-1 gives, I was just experimenting with defocusing during exposure and after I got this soft effect then I recalled hearing about this technique quite a number of years back. It might be Olympus or Pentax who have implemented it in one of their AF film SLR bodies then.espn said:Just came back to my mind when I bought a Nikon Soft-1 earlier and a more experienced friend of mine commented, Soft-2 is as good as defocusing the focus ring.
