I ran across this on the web.
I about fell out of my chair. Cool though.
where there’s smoke there’s forum fire
heh kinda cool : )
you can do that with a lens baby easily enough. You just make your own aperture disks.
looks cheap with this hearts in the background, but still interesting:)
If I remember correctly Tiffen has a similar set of filters. I think I've used them and didn't really like 'em that much.
Who needs those?
I assembled two drafts from white paper in less than a minute:
Any test shots with them though?
First I need to make a good set, and find out how to mount them on the lens.
I think using black construction paper is my best bet.
Any ideas on how to make precise cuts and mount it on the lens?
You could try mounting it on a cheap filter or hood. And you could use an Exacto knife. But no, I have no good ideas up my sleeves.
Thanks, I'll try that.
The old is new again :-) I used to make lots of these a long time ago :-) really not hard at all.. I was really poor and neccesity is the mother of invention! just take the filter off the lens and use it as a template. mark off circles using the filter on a piece of black paper then cut the circle out just a bit smaller then the template marked. You should now be able to jam/press the paper disk into the front of the filter and the threads should hold it in place. I usually leave a small tab on the side of the disk so that its easy to remove when you want to take it off.
now the fun part. with the disk you can fold it in half and cut the shape of a heart in the center with scissors. You can also fold it in quarter and cut star shapes or other weird shapes. To use just press the cut disks into the front of the filter and you good to go. To remove just pull on the tab an take it off. Easy !! ok send me paypal donations so I can continue to support my growing family.
You remind of someone...can't remember who though ;-)
Thanks for the instructions!
