More experiments with the diffusion filter. I didn't get as noticeable results at first. This time around I put the filter lens with an older optical design but one that I still considered "too sharp". The results more significant, but maybe still not as much as I'd like to see. Still, I'm liking where this is going.
Left is my main lens without filter. Right is my backup lens with filter.
Below is an example. It's a throw-away photo, but the rendering is what caught me. The focus is off and the subject is soft. But I loved the look - it has enough detail to get the point across, but the unimportant details aren't able to be rendered.
Now all of the sudden I'm smitten with the idea of playing with a '40's or '50's era lens.
