Comment on Diffusion Behind the Lens, in Practice by jcsehak http://www.magicgoggles.com/?p=117#comment-2144 jcsehak Thu, 19 Dec 2013 15:35:53 +0000 http://www.magicgoggles.com/?p=117#comment-2144 Hey Alex, I'm actually about to do another test, this time with the Fogal compared to the cheap stuff. I'll be sure to do some in-front-of-the-lens shots for ya. I got some pretty good results from Graeme Natress's Technicolor plug-in, but not perfect. I talked to Josh Childs, who did the coloring for -- and nailed the 3-perf Technicolor look for -- The Aviator. He said it was a lot of work figuring out how to do it, and wouldn't give up his secrets, in spite of my begging :( The GH3 is a fine camera. I've shot stuff on the GH2 that people still ask if it's film. And cheap stockings are fine too. Don't go with cream -- in my tests, using white stockings brought up the blacks w/o adding any detail. I think you probably stretched them too much. For your shoot, you might try Tiffen's fog filter. I've been meaning to try it myself on something; it looks like a lot of fun. Post a link when you've finished -- I'd love to check it out! Cheers, Josh Hey Alex,

I got some pretty good results from Graeme Natress’s Technicolor plug-in, but not perfect. I talked to Josh Childs, who did the coloring for — and nailed the 3-perf Technicolor look for — The Aviator. He said it was a lot of work figuring out how to do it, and wouldn’t give up his secrets, in spite of my begging :(

Amazing! I would love to have seen these same frames, but with the stockings in front, just to compare the "classic" look vs the "cheesy" one. Maybe next time? ;P Did you archive the Technicolor style? I hope you can post an article about that too :) It sounds promising. I have a GH3 (I know, I know...) and I tried today -for the first time- to add a regular 1$ black tight in front of the lens (didnt find att tape) And I was really unhappy with the results, no "fog" at all. - Could it be because of the camera? (I don't think so, plus I used a "good" lens - 25mm Voigtlander) - Because the stockings where black and 1$ worth? (Maybe change to cream colour/white?) - Did I maybe stretch them too much? (too much stress = less effect?) It's 4AM thursday, and I'm going to sleep now. On Sunday I have a videoshot that I would really liked to get some "vintage" foggy effect on it (exaggerated) so, if you have any tips/answers... please feel free to response :) Thanks and happy holidays Hey, I didn’t see this post before.

It was lots of fun. I actually just got some Fogal Noblesse; gonna test it against the Haynes and see if there's a noticeable difference. Thanks! It was lots of fun.

It's great for diffusion and can work in a pinch for an ND. Also, you can get a simple effect by using dry-erase markers on cellophane. Just paint different colors in whatever area you want the diffusion in and place in front of the lens. @loh@, Bree Josh:
